The South Pass 49 field is located near the mouth of the Mississippi River in approximately 300 feet of water. It was discovered by Gulf Oil in 1974 and produces from Discorbis 69 and Discorbis 70 Lower Pliocene sands, ranging in depth from 8,700 to 9,400 feet on OCS blocks South Pass 33, 48, and 49. We also operate all sands located at depths above and below the D69/D70 unit. The field is produced from one central production platform, which was shut in throughout 2009 due to damage sustained by third-party pipelines during Hurricane Gustav in late 2008 and returned to service in February 2010.
