Petronas provides fuel to Sudanese military aircraft

The Malaysian gas and oil producer Petronas has confirmed that despite a UN embargo, it provides fuel to Sudanese military aircraft. The Sudanese military is known for bombing civilians in Darfur.

Petronas is now facing criticism for its actions; the company is one of the largest investors in the Western Canada energy boom. It has planned investments to the tune of $36 billion.

The company says its behavior is not “questionable” as accused: it has been providing fuel at Nyala Airport to the Sudan military since 2007. The UN embargo has been in place since 2004. The conflict in Darfur has killed approximately 300,000 and close to 1.5 million people homeless.
