Fugro is conducting a seep survey and geochemical campaign in Block 48, offshore Suriname, for Petronas Suriname E&P B.V. (PSEPBV), a subsidiary of Petronas.

The work for PSEBV is being conducted from the survey vessel MV Fugro Brasilis and involves geophysical data collection, heat flow measurements, core sampling and onboard geochemical analyses, which aim to optimise future exploration activities in this frontier area. The fieldwork for the campaign will run through 1Q21 with subsequent geochemical analyses and final reports delivered in May 2021.

Brian Hottman, Fugro’s Director for Caribbean and Pacific South America, said: ”The Suriname-Guyana Basin is shaping up to be a world-class petroleum system, and PSEPBV is poised to be a major player in this region, as demonstrated by their successful results from the Sloanea-1 exploration well located in Block 52. We look forward to supporting their continued success in the region by defining high-potential areas within Block 48 and helping develop Suriname’s vital resources in a safe and responsible manner.”
