Kenana teams with Nile Petroleum to introduce E10 in Sudan on Sunday

April 22, 2013 |

In Sudan, Kenana has teamed with Nile Petroleum to establish an E10 blending program with pump sales starting on Sunday. The new blend will be marketed as Nileultra. Kenana has ethanol production capacity of 65 million liters per year and has been so far exporting ethanol to Europe as there has been no domestic market for fuel ethanol in Sudan. It has been supplying about 10% of the production for local paint and other industrial manufacturers, however. Since the separation of South Sudan where most of the country’s oil reserves are located, Sudan has been looking to ethanol as an opportunity to reduce demand for oil.
