DEEPWATER GULF OF MEXICO — REPORT 2014

There is more than a century history of oil production in the Gulf of Mexico. Subject area has been treated as a primary source of oil and gas for America, generating as much as ninety-seven percent of all offshore hydrocarbons production. The release of the present document is an attempt to highlight the offshore oil and gas production activities in the deepwater GOM.

The publication was prepared by the Office of resource Evaluation in the Gulf of Mexico to present the seismic, leasing, geologic, well, reserves and of course production information addressing the deepwater portion of the Gulf. There are numerous criteria commonly used when defining deepwater. The threshold that separate deepwater and shallow water ranges from 200 to 457 meters. Within the content of this document deepwater is defined as the water depth exceeding 305 meters, or one thousand feet.

Most of the information contained in the ages of this report gas been collected from the data available by the end 2014. The crude oil is reported together with the condensate, same applies to the non-associated and associated gas. The report is very informative and will be useful to the people with professional interest in the offshore exploration an production of hydrocarbons.
