Iran Oil Ministry has signed an agreement with a North Sudanese oil company to provide the oil-rich African country with technical and engineering services.

The agreement has been signed between Iranís Research Institute of Petroleum Industry (RIPI) and Sudanís PLRS company, Mehr News Agency reported.

Ezzatollah Kazemzadeh, head of the Petroleum Engineering Department of RIPI, said Iran has already dispatched specialists to train North Sudanese petroleum engineers.

He added that the RIPI conducted studies on the sandstone petroleum cores of Abu Gabra Formation in Azraq oil field in North Sudan last June.

Last month, Sudanese Oil Minister Makkawi Mohamed Awad said his countryís oil production stands at 130,000 barrels per day (bpd).

Prior to the countryís breakup in 2011, Sudan produced nearly 500,000 bpd while the rival South Sudan now sits atop more than three quarters of the total oil reserves.

Iranís oil deal with Sudan is the first since the January 20 implementation of Tehranís nuclear deal with world powers and the expected easing of sanctions against Iranís energy sector.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council Ė Russia, China, France, Britain and the US Ė plus Germany clinched a landmark nuclear deal in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 24, 2013.

Under the deal, Iran agreed to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities as a confidence-building measure, and world powers undertook to provide Iran with some sanctions relief and release more than USD four billion of Tehranís oil revenues.
