We engage in the exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and onshore in the Gulf Coast area. Our exploration strategy is focused on the "deep gas play," drilling to depths of 15,000 to 25,000 feet in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast area to target large structures in the Deep Miocene, and on the "ultra-deep gas play" below 25,000 feet. We have one of the largest acreage positions in the shallow waters of these areas, which are our regions of focus. Our focused strategy enables us to capitalize on our geological and technical capabilities, and our more than 35 years of operating experience in this region. We also believe that our scale of operations in the Gulf of Mexico allows us to realize certain operating synergies and provides a strong platform from which to pursue our business strategy. Our oil and gas operations are conducted through MOXY, our principal operating subsidiary.
