Suriname Shallow Offshore Bid Round

Following Staatsolie’s announcement on 16th November 2020 about their Shallow Offshore Suriname Bid Round, it is now confirmed that the Virtual Data Room opened on 1st December for companies that have been authorised as a bidder. The deadline for bids is 30th April 2021.

PanTerra Geoconsultants is in a unique position to support interested companies in the evaluation of the acreage on offer.

PanTerra Geoconsultants has a long and active track record in Suriname. For more than 20 years we have supplied laboratory, sub-surface and engineering consultancy in Suriname, both onshore and offshore. We have carried out exploration and field studies and our associates worked on the maturation modelling of the basin, including recently the evaluation of the shallow offshore area to lead interpretation projects and define prospectivity and risks. This year PanTerra was also involved in the preparation of the EOR development of the Tambaredjo Field.

If your company is interested in participating in the Shallow Offshore Suriname Bid Round, we can help you with the evaluation of the data and select the best blocks to make an offer. PanTerra’s Subsurface team, with all required disciplines in-house, can evaluate the offered acreage quickly and efficiently. Alternatively, our associates can join you in your offices to give support to your team.

Services offered are seismic interpretation, mapping, maturation and migration modelling, prospect analysis (stratigraphic and structural), scoping development scenarios, cost analysis and economics. We can also serve as peer reviewers or decision-making advisors. We have the expertise to evaluate acquisition parameters and costs for seismic campaigns in shallow water environments.

We are the experience and local knowledge team to help you.
