Republic of Suriname

The Republic of Suriname, with its capital city Paramaribo, is located just north of the Amazon delta on the northeast coast of South America. It is bordered in the north by the Atlantic Ocean, in the west by Guyana, in the east by French Guiana, and in the south by Brazil. For the most part, Suriname is covered by tropical rain forest and is thinly inhabited. The population is a rich ethnic blend of approximately 500,000 inhabitants. Although the official language is Dutch, English is widely understood and spoken. Suriname is a parliamentary democracy and has an elected President heading the Government.

The country's rich mining history as one of the major bauxite and alumina producers in the world spans approximately 90 years, with the Alcoa and BHPBilliton as operators.

The sedimentary basin, including the offshore economic zone, covers approximately 155,000 square kilometers/38,000,000 acres. The systematic search for petroleum began in the early sixties, but petroleum development took a leap after 1980 with the set up of Staatsolie, and production sharing service contract models were introduced for the participation of private oil companies in petroleum activities.
