Mariscal Sucre contains four gas fields on the northwest part of the Gulf of Paria and is believed to contain 11 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Drilling will take place at water depths of 328 to 427ft. Mariscal Sucre is one of two projects planned to feed into a rail system that is part of the Delta Caribe LNG project.
