Nearshore Drilling Project Staatsolie Completed

January 2020, Paramaribo, Suriname

Staatsolie Maatschappij Suriname N.V. wanted to explore the near shore area for oil and gas reserves. They have asked WEP to help them with the well engineering during the preparation phase and the drilling engineering during the exploration campaign. WEP has provided an in-house drilling manager and senior drilling engineer, as well as support from the main office in Hoogeveen. 6 wells were drilled all reaching their target depth and valuable information was gathered during the drilling. Four wells had oil shows confirming the potential of oil in the Suriname coastal area. The project was carried out within the planned time and budget without incidents or damage to our environment.
