EXPLORATION AND PRODUCTION DIRECTORATE
The Exploration and Production (E&P) Directorate is the core of the business of Nile Petroleum Corporation (NILEPET), and is charged with participation, facilitation and monitoring of all upstream (exploration, development and production) activities in concession blocks operated by the Joint Operating Companies (JOCs).
The Directorate has four departments and is headed by a Deputy Managing Director/Director General (DMD/DG). The departments, Exploration, Development, Operations, and Production and Facilities play an important role of providing technical support to NILEPET and its affiliates, JOCs and the Government of South Sudan.
As mandated by law, NILEPET being the National Oil and Gas Corporation of the Government of South Sudan enforces has a participating interest in all oil and gas consortia operating in the country. This is to safeguard the national interest.
Apart from JOCs still in exploration phase, there are three producing JOCs, namely Dar Petroleum Operating Company (DPOC), Greater Pioneer Operating Company (GPOC) and Sudd Petroleum Operating Company (SPOC) with different concession areas/blocks and shareholders as summarized below.
After independence in July 2011, South Sudan came out with Petroleum Act 2012 and resized the previous Sudan-inherited blocks to suit the new state policies.
