Prepared January 2013 Focusing on: Oil Exploration Mineral Exploration Fuel for South Sudan. SOUTH SUDAN BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES Chang & Skalbania Exploration Ltd. A division of Chang & Skalbania Exploration Ltd. Naath – means "people“ from the language of the Nuer Nilotic nation in South Sudan.
2 Overview Republic of South Sudan, became an independent state on 9 July It is a landlocked country located in the Sahel region of northeastern Africa. It is also part of the North Africa UN sub-region. Its current capital is Juba, which is also its largest city. South Sudan is bordered by Ethiopia to the east, Kenya to the southeast, Uganda to the south, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the southwest, the Central African Republic to the west, and Sudan to the north. The official language is English and Christianity is the major religion. The economy is primarily driven by the production and exportation of oil. Oil revenues constitute 98% of the government’s budget, according to the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning and this has amounted to more than $8 billion in revenue since the signing of the peace agreement. 2
3 Oil and Gas Overview South Sudan’s oil reserve is currently estimated at 6.5 billion barrels of recoverable crude oil, placing it in the top ten countries with greatest proven petroleum reserves, above other sub-Sahara African States in the world petroleum reserves ranking. Current production is approximately 400,000 bpd. The source rocks are the Lower Cretaceous lacustrine shales, whereas reservoirs and seals are both Palaeogene and Upper Cretaceous. Heavy to light crude oils and gas have been discovered in the Palaeogene and only light crude oils and gas in the Upper Cretaceous producing zones. The dominant oil production is in the Melut basin in Unity State, South Sudan and is in the Palaeogene zone. 3
4 Oil and Gas Market South Sudan’s oil industry is dominated by pacific rim companies. Oil is exported via pipelines to a small refinery in Khartoum and a larger one at Port Sudan with the balance of crude exported from Port Sudan South Sudan is an importer of refined petroleum products. 4
5 OPPORTUNITY: Oil Concessions by Providing Power 5 C&S has entered into negotiations to provide a number of electricity generating sets (diesel fueled) to certain cities in South Sudan. The concept is to provide gen-sets (0.5 MW to 1.0 MW) to seven cities provided: a) power purchase agreements with the governments are obtained b) some oil exploration concessions could be obtained, the size of the concessions determined by the number of gen-sets that are provided.
6 Opportunity: Oil Concessions by Providing Mini-refineries 6 Naath has entered into negotiations with the government to provide refinery capacity for South Sudan. The initial program is to acquire and install two mini-refineries that would only process diesel fuel while returning the unused crude to the source. Further, the plan is to develop a larger refinery (20,000 barrels/day) to be located at the southern terminus of the existing pipeline that goes through North Sudan to a refinery on the Red Sea. The negotiations with South Sudan are that we will build refineries provided: a)sufficient crude from existing production provided for the refineries and b)Naath to have some oil concessions in BLK 7 or BLK B to develop its own crude. Naath has retained Stefan Kmetovic, P.Eng., (Petro-Mont Technical Services Inc.) as the refinery consultant.
7 Opportunity – Mineral Concession 7 The Ministry of Mines has granted Naath exclusive rights to explore/develop certain properties identified as prospective by the government. We have identified the most promising areas for initial exploration which are in the SW and SE of South Sudan. Naath is in the process of selecting a geologist and/or firm to joint-venture and explore these mineral targets. Paul Sarjeant, P.Geo. of Toronto has been retained as Naath’s consulting geologist to supervise this program.
8 Opportunity: Fuel Distribution 8 Naath is government licensed to deliver diesel/petrol/kerosene fuel to South Sudan. Fuel is sold to government agencies, the United Nations and to the private sector. To date, the fuel source is from depost/suppliers in Kenya. Naath has now delivered several diesel tankers of 31,000 litres each, along with some kerosene. The diesel program is to ultimately have one tanker per day delivering fuel from Kenya to South Sudan. Naath has installed its own storage tanks in Juba and is in the process of purchasing its own truck tankers. The target is to bring in 2,000,000 litres per month.
