Onshore opportunities

Open Door invitation 2019 for Onshore Opportunities Suriname. Opening for submission of proposals starts on the 1st of January 2019.  

Staatsolie is seeking to attract Oil & Gas Companies to submit proposals for the onshore blocks Commewijne, Coronie and Weg naar Zee. Each block exhibit multiple play types to be further explored.

There are indications of stratigraphic and structural plays in the blocks, which are primarily sourced by the proven Albian Cenomanian Turonian Formation and from an older Jurassic Source Rock.
