Onshore opportunities

The onshore blocks Nickerie, Coronie and Commewijne exhibit multiple play types to be further explored.

There are indications of mainly stratigraphic plays in the Tertiary and fault related plays in the Cretaceous, which are primarily sourced by the proven Canje Formation, with possibility from an older Jurassic Source Rock.
