Quiet is a good subtlety for the area. Potential, historically has been for fairly dry gas and you know how attractive that has been offshore in deeper waters over the years. Problem is the scarcity of organic laden source material sediments, originating from the many deltas formed across S La. _______________________________________________________
Now enter the arena with new concepts and improved seismic. Older aged objectives as far back as the Cretaceous sands and limestones, and Jurassic limestones and calcarious detritus(such as beds of reefal fragments) may be justification for another round of leasing preceding exploration. Pemex has established excellent production from these sediments located in the Southern GOM. MMR has an indicated Cretaceous discovery for the DJ prospect on a prominent near shore South Marsh Island structure. _________________________________________________
New trends need evaluating extending across the US portion of the western GOM.
