Davis Offshore L.P. engages primarily in the business of natural gas and oil exploration and production in the Outer Continental Shelf of the Gulf of Mexico. Davis Offshore believes the current environment in the Deepwater Gulf offers an excellent opportunity for medium to smaller sized indepentents. Under the guidance and leadership of Davis Petroleum Corp., Davis Offshore L.P. expects to extend these successes into larger stakes exploration and production opportunities. Davis Offshore is focused on generating exploration and exploitation prospects offshore Louisiana in depths of 500 to 6,000 feet of water. The presence of existing and emerging production facilities and infrastructure in this area improves the economics of prospecting for these potentially huge reserve targets.

Davis Offshore, L.P. is committed to the Gulf of Mexico and is demonstrating this commitment by assembling an experienced team of explorationists and businessmen who have a proven record of generating oil and gas prospects, acquiring the prospective acreage, securing partners in these prospects and then finding and producing oil and gas. As explorationists, our team has been involved in the drilling of 11 exploratory wells in the Deepwater Gulf of Mexico. To date, Davis has assembled numerous exploration prospects, participated in several OCS lease sales and secured third-party industry participation.
