The likelihood and potential impacts of alternative South Sudan oil pipelines

This briefing from Open Briefing, a think tank providing intelligence and research services to civil society organizations, outlines that the construction of an alternative oil pipeline from South Sudan to Port Lamu, Kenya are overly optimistic and pipeline construction is unlike to remain on schedule. Despite delays and ongoing barriers to project construction, Juba is highly likely to continue pursuing alternatives to the existing pipeline to Port Sudan, Sudan. Such alternatives, if constructed, would have significant economic and political impacts on South Sudan, Sudan, China, and Kenya, Ethiopia and other potential pipeline partners.
