Deepwater Block 59 adds significant acreage to ExxonMobil’s operated portfolio in the Guyana-Suriname Basin. It is in water depths ranging from 2000 m - 3600 m, located approximately 190 miles (305 km) offshore Suriname’s capital city, Paramaribo. The block is 2.8 million acres, or 4430 square miles, and shares a maritime border with Guyana, where ExxonMobil is the operator of three offshore blocks, including the world-class Liza field discovered by ExxonMobil in 2015.
