In the face of severe gasoline shortages in Sudan, Saudi Aramco is in talks with Sudan about a “long-term” partnership.
This shortage has prompted the government to set up a quota system and try to deal with the growing frustration among the population due to the huge queues at gas stations.
The Sudanese Ministry of Energy and Oil said in a statement on Sunday that it was close to finalizing an agreement ahead of an economic forum between the two countries that began on Monday in the capital, Khartoum.
Saudi Arabia has already started sending some fuel shipments, but a long-term agreement with Aramco is expected to stabilize fuel supplies to Sudan.
