Total and Apache have made a material oil discovery with the Maka Central-1 well on Block 58 offshore Suriname, on trend with the prolific discoveries in the adjacent Stabroek block in Guyana. The Maka Central-1 well was drilled by a water depth of about 1,000 meters and encountered more than 123 meters net pay of high-quality light oil and gas rich condensate net pay, in multiple stacked reservoirs in Upper Cretaceous Campanian and Santonian formations. Further drilling and testing will be carried out to appraise the resources and productivity of the reservoir.

The Maka Central-1 exploration well was drilled by Apache as operator with 50% working interest and with Total as the JV partner with 50% working interest. The next exploration well will be drilled on the Sapakara West-1 prospect and the operatorship will be transferred to Total after completion of a third exploration well.
