Seismic Study to Begin Offshore Suriname

Five months after the signing of an exploration and production agreement, State Oil and Repsol are ready to start a 2D seismic survey off the coast of Suriname. To cut cost, State Oil and Maersk, which is currently also negotiating with State Oil about a collaboration, will also conduct separate seismic surveys off the Surinamese coast. The ship the Polar Venturer that will be used to conduct the research is moored in Nieuwe Haven. The ship is equipped with the latest technical equipment and belongs to the seismic contractor Fugro GeoteamAS. The Polar Venturer will start its activities this weekend.
