Oil output in South Sudan declined to as little as 120,000 barrels per day because of damage caused by a 2 1/2-year civil war to production facilities, Petroleum Minister Dak Duop Bischok said.

The only crude being produced in the East African nation is at Paloch in Upper Nile state, Bischok said in an interview Wednesday in the capital, Juba. Oil companies are working on bringing facilities back on stream with the aim of boosting output by July, he said.
