Oil industry

Suriname produces an average of 17,000 barrels of oil per day. After Trinidad and Tobago and Cuba, Suriname is the largest oil producer in the Caribbean. With the recent oil discoveries and the estimate of yet to be discovered commercially recoverable oil fields, Suriname can undergo an enormous development.

Investors can participate in oil extraction by entering into a petroleum agreement with the state-owned company Staatsolie. Major investments are needed, which means that there are mainly investment opportunities for large multinationals in the oil sector. Exxon Mobil, Royal Dutch Shell, Total and Apache have the rights to explore in the Guyana Basin in Suriname. This offers opportunities for the supplying oil and gas sectors.
