Total and Apache Corporation have made a second significant discovery with the Sapakara West-1 well on Block 58 offshore Suriname. It follows the previous discovery at Maka Central-1. The well was drilled by a water depth of about 1,000 meters and encountered 79 meters net pay of high-quality light oil and gas condensate, in multiple stacked and good quality reservoirs in Upper Cretaceous Campanian and Santonian formations. Further testing will be carried out to appraise the resources and productivity of the reservoir.

The Sapakara West-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 Kwaskwasi prospect, with a fourth exploration well to be planned back-to-back on the Keskesi prospect.

Total will become operator of the Block after the drilling of the 4th well
