Apache Corporation, operator at Block 58 offshore Suriname, has extended its contract for the Noble Sam Croft drillship by executing an option for another well.

The contract initially expired in June, prior to which the Sam Croft made two discoveries at Block 58 – Maka Central-1 and Sapakara West 1. These discoveries mark the first of their kind offshore Suriname. The contract extension is now expected to last until mid-November 2020, according to Noble Corporation’s July Fleet Status Report.

Upon completion of operations at Sapakara West-1, the Sam Croft moved to the third prospect, Kwaskwasi, which is located approximately 10 kilometers (6 miles) northwest of Sapakara West-1.

The fourth exploration target is Keskesi, which will be drilled approximately 20 kilometers (12 miles) southeast of Sapakara West-1.

Apache has said both exploration wells will test oil-prone upper Cretaceous targets in the Campanian and Santonian intervals in reservoirs that appear to be independent from the Maka and Sapakara discoveries.
