Gulf of Mexico

Gulf of Mexico

The Gulf of Mexico region comprises assets in the offshore waters of the Gulf of Mexico and onshore Louisiana. Apache has interests in several deep-water exploration and development offshore leases, when it sold substantially all of its offshore assets in water depths less than 1,000 feet, it retained a 50-percent ownership interest in all exploration blocks and in horizons below production in development blocks and access to existing infrastructure. Apache’s offshore technical teams continue to focus on evaluating subsalt and other deeper exploration opportunities in water depths less than 1,000 feet where high-potential deep hydrocarbon plays may exist and which have been relatively untested by the industry. During 2016, Apache’s Gulf of Mexico Region contributed 7,816 barrels of oil equivalent per day to the company’s total production. During 2017, the company expects to participate in one nonoperated exploration well.


Oil production (Bpd) 3,512 4,791
Total liquids production (Bpd) 3,787 5,379
Natural gas production (Mcfd) 10,196 16,476
Barrels of oil equivalent per day 5,486 8,125
