Border dispute chokes South Sudan oil fields

New state relies on rival Sudan to transport fuel it produces at facilities near contested border.

    It has been about one year since South Sudan shut down its oil production as a bargaining tool used against its neighbour Sudan.

    Major oil fields, such as Heglig, lie close to the border and South Sudan relies on Sudan to transport the fuel it produces.

    Al Jazeera's Anna Cavell reports from Juba, capital of South Sudan.
