Suriname upstream fiscal summary

Report summary

Suriname has a relatively standard form of Production Sharing Contract (PSC) fiscal regime.  Royalty rates, cost recovery ceilings and corporate income tax rates are all fixed.  Profit oil splits vary with project profitability (the R-Factor).  There are some indirect taxes, but no bonuses, rentals or fees are payable.   The barrel = lifetime revenue / field reserves. Profit = revenue – costs from barrel charts.  For further details see New Investment: Methodology. Source: Wood Mackenzie
