The Croatian state-owned INA oil and gas company has begun exploration activities in an oil block in northwestern Iran, Iran's English-language Press TV reported on Monday.

"The Croatian firm started work in the Moghan-2 Block on June 21," Hossein Roshandel, director for exploration affairs of Iran's National Iranian Oil Company was quoted as saying.

The Croatian company signed a deal with NIOC on April 9 to carry out exploration in the 3,230-square kilometer area, Roshandel said, adding that the 142-million-dollar project aims to discover new hydrocarbon reserves in the block located in the Caspian region near Iran's border with Azerbaijan.

The company which must drill an exploration well and appraise the seismological data of the block within a span of four to five years, will be in charge of exploration and development activities in the block for a 25-year period in case of a commercial discovery, he said.

In the 1960s, four exploration wells were drilled in the area, two of which contained significant amounts of oil.

INA currently conducts exploration and drilling projects in Croatia, Angola, Egypt and Syria.
