Apache Suriname retains a 75% participating interest in the block, which it holds under a production-sharing contract with state-owned Staatsolie Maatschappij Suriname NV. Staatsolie can back in for 20% in commercial discoveries on the 867,117-acre block.

The block is 80 miles offshore in 1,640-5,900 ft of water.
