Block 61

In 2018 Cairn was awarded an operated exploration agreement offshore Suriname by Staatsolie (State Oil Company of Suriname).

Suriname is a frontier area with multiple wells currently drilling in the region. Cairn holds a 100% interest in the largest offshore block. The licence covers an area of 13,000 km2 in the Demerara plateau basin which has a conjugate margin to the SNE field in Senegal.

Cairn acquired more than 4,500 km of 2D seismic data over Block 61 in early 2019 in order to better assess the block’s prospectivity. The preliminary results are promising, and full data processing is nearing completion.
