(Energy Analytics Institute, Aaron Simonsky, 14.Sep.2018) — Kosmos Energy continues to explore new basin potential outside of Africa.
In December 2011, Kosmos secured a position offshore Suriname, marking the company’s first portfolio expansion beyond Africa.
In Suriname, located in the north-eastern portion of South America, Kosmos participates in two blocks: Block 42 and Block 45
“The extension of the emerging oil petroleum system recently opened in Guyana, provides up to five independent plays and multi-billion barrel potential,” announced Kosmos in an investor presentation on its website.
Drilling was to have commenced in the second quarter of 2018, according to the company.
