south sudans trinity energy eyes domestic refinery despite local industry woes

Trinity Energy, the oil marketer in South Sudan, is setting its sights on regional growth and domestic refining, according to deputy CEO Kenneth Mugambi.

Mugambi cites the launch of the Dangote refinery in Nigeria as an inspiration for the companys push into oil refining, noting that the entry of pan-African financiers such as Afreximbank into the refining sector is a gamechanger for the industry.

Founded in 2012, the company holds a dominant position in South Sudans oil marketing sector, accounting for nearly 40% of the countrys petroleum product sales.

Since its founding, the company has predominantly focused on importing, distributing and retailing petroleum products. However, recent years have seen Trinity diversify its portfolio beyond downstream operations.

We have diversified into upstream and are currently providing oilfield support services to the companies involved in exploration and production in South Sudan. This includes services such as drilling, engineering, logistics and accommodation. We are now working towards offering manpower contracting services, says Mugambi.
