Shell’s footprint

Shell has been present in Suriname since December 2020 when it acquired a 33% stake in offshore Block 42 from Kosmos Energy. In December 2021, KE Suriname B.V. farmed into the Block 5 licence with Chevron Suriname Exploration Limited (the operator) and Paradise Oil Company N.V. KE Suriname BV has a 33.3% interest in the Block 5 licence during the exploration phase.

Country financial analysis

The statutory corporate income tax rate in Suriname was 36% for 2021. We are investing in upstream operations and therefore we have reported a loss.
