Khartoum has made a formal request to Egypt to supply Sudan with natural gas, affirming that Cairo pledged to study the request and respond accordingly, according to Minister of Electricity and Dams, Osama Abdullah.

Abdullah said that he held talks with Egyptian Oil Minister Abdullah Ghorab, where the talks tackled different fields between Sudan and Egypt in the light of the development of relations between the two countries after the revolution of January 25.

He assured that the talks included the joint cooperation in the field of natural gas to supply Sudan through the town of Wadi Halfa to engage in the production of electricity from gas.

Former Minister of International Cooperation in Sudan, Jalal Al-Degair had announced, last October, Egypt approval to supply the Sudan with gas through a pipeline in Wadi Halfa.
