The plan is in the final stage to be signed by the President of Suriname. We worked with Staatsolie, the National Coordination Centre for Disaster Relief, environmental agencies, other operators and other key stakeholders to help develop the Suriname National Oil Spill Contingency Plan. ENGAGEMENT AND LISTENING Kosmos is committed to transparency and active promotion of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), including in countries such as Suriname that are not yet members of the EITI. We are pleased that Suriname has recently indicated its intention to submit an application to join the EITI in the near future. In 2015, Kosmos supported a workshop in Paramaribo on natural resource revenue governance and the key points of the EITI process, bringing together government, civil society, and industry representatives. We plan to continue to support transparency initiatives in Suriname in 2016. As part of our Environmental and Social Impact Assessment process in Suriname, we have engaged with coastal communities in the districts of Paramaribo, Saramacca, Coronie, and Nickerie. These communities have told us that they deeply value the coastal environment and wish to be kept updated on our activities as well as any job opportunities that could arise from an oil or gas discovery. POSITIVE IMPACTS Kosmos’ social investment programs in Suriname in 2015 focused on scientific education and environmental awareness, as these are two areas of great importance to a range of stakeholders, such as local communities, civil society, and the Surinamese government. Kosmos worked closely with the Geology Department at the Anton de Kom University of Suriname, the nation’s only university, to understand their needs in terms of hands-on education, which resulted in Kosmos providing new equipment for the University’s geology lab. Students will now be able to conduct more advanced laboratory experiments and research on campus. In addition to our investment in university-level students, Kosmos also provided engineering education equipment for the Commewijne Lower Technical School. Our hope is that these projects will lead to additional interest in, and preparation for, careers in the extractive sectors in Suriname. Protecting the Environment The mangrove is a sea plant that grows abundantly along Suriname’s coastline, and is critical to preserving the local habitat and avoiding coastal erosion. In 2015, Kosmos invested in programs that support mangrove growth and local education around the important role mangroves play in the coastal Surinamese ecosystem. Our first mangrove project was supporting the development and furnishing of equipment and displays for the Mangrove Education Center in the district of Coronie, which is a partnership between the Ministry of Physical Planning, Land, and Forest Management, the Staatsolie Foundation, United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Global Environment Facility (GEF). In 2016, we plan to continue our support of local mangrove projects through partnerships around technical assistance for mangrove specialists, as well as sediment and growth monitoring. A process engineering student at the NATIN School in Paramaribo conducts an experiment on the properties of water, using equipment provided by Kosmos. “The collaboration of the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) department of the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture, with Kosmos Energy is a good example in Suriname where the government and the private sector are working together to develop a skilled work force and support economic growth in Suriname. Our cooperation has also contributed to the government’s policy goal of reducing unemployment. Over the past four years, the projects implemented by the TVET department and Kosmos Energy have benefited Paramaribo and the districts of Commewijne and Saramacca.” MR. ASHOKKOEMAR RAMBALI Assistant Permanent-Secretary for Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET), Ministry of Education, Science and Culture “I have managed the financials and accounting for our Suriname operations for the past three years. As Kosmos continues to build up operations in Suriname, it has been great to have our team engaged in giving back to the community through our social investment projects. We work closely with local institutions on developing sustainable projects, such as enhancements to technical education for youth.” SHARAN TJON KWIE SEM Senior Accountant Kosmos Energy Suriname 39 39
