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 has an initial 2D seismic acquisition commitment with 4,150km planned for the fourth quarter of 2018.
