European Coalition on Oil in Sudan
May 31st, 2006

This preliminary investigation by ECOS documents the socio-economic and environmental impact of oil exploitation in the Melut Basin in Upper Nile State, Sudan, as told by inhabitants of the area and photo graphed from satellites. It focuses on the Melut and Maban Counties, Renk District, which fall into concession blocks 3 and 7, held by the Petrodar Operating Company Ltd. under a Production Sharing Agreement with the Sudanese Government.

The European Coalition on Oil in Sudan (ECOS) is a group of over 80 European organizations working for peace and justice in Sudan. We call for action by governments and the business sector to ensure that Sudan’s oil wealth contributes to peace and equitable development.
