Tullow Acquires Inpex’s Share in Offshore Suriname Block

INPEX CORPORATION has announced that its  subsidiary Teikoku Oil (Suriname) Co., Ltd, has reached an agreement to transfer a 30% participating interest in the Block 31 (Block), Offshore Suriname, to Tullow Suriname B.V., a subsidiary of Tullow Oil plc (Tullow), an independent E&P company based in the United Kingdom. This transaction is subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions, including Staatsolie’s
approval.

The Block is located approximately 90km north of Paramaribo, the capital of Suriname, and covers 5,560km2 with a water depth ranging from 30m to 90m. After INPEX  acquired the Block in 2007, it has conducted three-dimensional seismic works and  drilled an exploratory well as the operator since 2008. Another three-dimensional  seismic data acquisition is now ongoing, and further exploration activities will continue including another exploratory well planned in 2015. Offshore Suriname is a frontier area where exploration activities intensified only in  recent years. The Block is promising for oil and gas discoveries as oil and gas shows.

This is the third case for INPEX to have Tullow as a project partner following the Mozambican project and Uruguayan project. It is hoped this farm-out will further strengthen the relationship with Tullow, which focuses on E&P activities in frontier areas in Latin America and Africa.
