China National Petroleum Corporation evacuates its staff in South Sudan
The China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC) evacuated almost 200 of its employees in South Sudan. The company worries for their safety because of the reescalation of the civil war in the country, oilprice.com reports. CNPC mentioned that 77 of its workers still remain in South Sudan and they will try to maintain normal operations in Africa, but the country is ready to remove all the personnel from Sudan in case of any danger to their health and lives.

Chinese companies invested about $20 billion in the Sudanese economy before 2011 when the country split into two separate republics. The civil war started in December 2013 causing tens of thousands of deaths. A new spiral of the conflict aroused earlier this month in the capital of South Sudan – Juba. Most world governments started to pull their citizens out from the Africa’s hot spot.
