1 Water depths shown reflect depth at facility. If project is subsea or undeveloped, water depth reflects depth of deepest well location in project.

2 The absence of a field discovery date indicates an industry-announced discovery without a qualified well on the lease. These discoveries have not necessarily been confirmed by the MMS and they are not yet classified as fields by the MMS.
