TotalEnergies and its partner APA Corporation have made a ‘significant’ oil and associated gas discovery in Block 58, offshore Suriname.

The companies found oil by drilling the Krabdagu-1 (KBD-1) exploration well, in the central area of Block 58.

The current drilling success follows previous discoveries made at the Maka, Sapakara, Kwaskwasi, and Keskesi wells, and the successful test at the Sapakara South-1 appraisal well.
