EIA OF SUDAN'S OIL FIELDS - EFFECTS OF THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE  OIL INDUSTRY

 

 

The oil industry in southern Sudan has developed rapidly over the past decade more than 1000 oil wells have been drilled and several large oil fields have been established. Most of the oil fields are placed in Africa’s largest wetland area ‘The Sudd’ which is catchment area to the White Nile and host several ethnic groups and a huge amount of wild life.

 

Based upon EO data we have made change analysis in the larges part of the productive oil concession areas - we have spotted several problems for humans and the environment.

 

Oil concession area as they were distributed in 2007 – we have analyzed Block 1, 2, 3, 4, 5a, 6, 7 and 12. The map further shows oil wells that have been observed in concession bloks and regions. 

 

The Machar Marshes are among the larges in the world and contribute to the draining systems of the Nile, they have high nature value and the areas are used for small holder agriculture and by nomads for winter grassing. Lately, oil has been found in the areas and big programs have started for exploration of the oil. Satellite images are excellent and a cheap measure to spot the consequence of the oil exploration activities, including all weather roads which blocks and disturbers the natural draining of the area.
