Marathon Sold Sudan Stake to Total in March

Sudan, the East African country currently under U.S. sanctions, has taken another victim. Marathon announced April 22 that in March the company sold its interest in a southern block to France's Total SA.

The sale of interest in the 118,000-square-kilometer Block B, effective March 31, was not attributed a value by either Marathon or Total.

Reports suggested that the sale should bring about a renewed interest in one of Africa's most oil-rich nations.
