News Summary: S. Sudan oil restart could take year

WAGES OF WAR: South Sudan says it could take up to a year to restart oil production in some fields due to damage done by Sudanese forces during military clashes in April.

SIBLING RIVALRY: South Sudan inherited around 75 percent of Sudan's oil production when it split off from Sudan in July 2011. The south must export its oil through pipelines in Sudan, and the two have been unable to agree on usage fees.

SIMMERING DOWN? Both countries recently reached an agreement in principle on fees after months of talks. The agreement won't be signed until other issues are resolved.
