Total SE said Thursday that it has made a new oil-and-gas discovery at its Suriname site alongside partner Apache Corp.
The discovery at the Keskesi East-1 well at Block 58 off Suriname's coast encountered 63 meters net pay of hydrocarbons, the French energy giant said. It follows previous discoveries at Maka Central, Sapakara West and Kwaskwasi in the same area.
"We are also excited, as new operator of the block, to start the appraisal operations designed to characterize the 2020 discoveries, while in parallel start a second exploration campaign on this prolific block in 2021," said Total's Senior Vice President for Exploration, Kevin McLachlan. Total took over operations of Block 58 on Jan. 1.
