RESERVES AND PRODUCTION
The deepwater GOM has contributed major additions to the total reserves in the GOM.
Additions from the shallow waters of the
GOM declined in recent years but, beginning in 1975, the deepwater area started contributing significant
This figure shows declining reserve additions in shallow water, similar to figure 51, but reveals significantly more deepwater reserve
additions and large significant unproved reserve additions in water depths greater than 5,000 ft (1,524 m)
beginning in 1998.
During the last 10 years, the average shallow-water field added approximately 5 MMBOE of proved and unproved reserves.
