Otto’s disciplined opportunities assessment process

A detailed, technically driven filter

Central GOM shelf

69 salt domes identified

Purchase seismic data

17 salt domes

Central GOM Shelf selected as opportunity area

  • 2,700-Block area of GOM shelf with highest liquid content
  • Stacked Miocene/Pliocene-aged reservoir package – seismic amplitude-supported and multiple vintages of seismic data available
  • Low cost operating environment (WD < 250’)

69 salt domes identified to have:

  • Strong and diverse production histories with favourable geologic growth histories
  • Salt dome anomalies (i.e. salt overhangs or poorly imaged portions of salt dome)

Purchase seismic data

  • Utilized over 3,000 blocks of vintage, public domain seismic data to identify leads
  • Purchased 100 blocks of Fairfield PSTM/PSDM seismic data to refine leads to prospects
  • Purchased 50 blocks of Fairfield Hidden Treasure RTM data to sharpen prospect imaging

17 salt domes Identified for detailed evaluation

  • Currently underway; pursuing opportunities on both leased and open acreage
  • Leased acreage includes financially stressed operators, operators willing to consider joint ventures, as well as companies that are not applying newest technologies
