A LEADER IN THE GULF OF MEXICO

Fieldwood Energy is one of the largest operators in the Gulf of Mexico, a region that is our heritage and an integral part of our DNA.

Each member of our management team has spent most —if not all— of their careers operating in the Gulf, and the company has been built by acquiring the offshore businesses of some of the basin’s leading operators.  It is our people, partnerships and commitment to operational excellence with a focus on safety that are the foundations of our continued growth.

Fieldwood Energy’s long-term commitment to the Gulf of Mexico began when the company was established in September 2013 with the acquisition of Apache’s Gulf of Mexico Shelf business, followed shortly thereafter by the acquisition of SandRidge’s Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast business units in early 2014. In late 2015, following the historic Mexican energy reforms, Fieldwood successfully bid on the Ichalkil and Pokoch fields in the shallow water Bay of Campeche, and in 2017 became the first U.S. company to drill a well offshore Mexico in over 75 years. In April 2018, Fieldwood significantly expanded its deepwater Gulf of Mexico presence through the acquisition of Noble Energy’s deepwater assets.

Our Operations

Fieldwood’s significant footprint in the deepwater and shallow water Gulf of Mexico includes interests in approximately 500 offshore blocks covering approximately two million gross acres, including over 1,000 wells and more than 500 operated platforms. In addition to our U.S. presence, Fieldwood is also the operator of the Ichalkil and Pokoch fields in Mexico’s shallow water Bay of Campeche located approximately 60 miles offshore              Ciudad del Carmen.
