We are an independent, oil-focused exploration and production company with a
world-class below salt prospect inventory in the deepwater of the U.S. Gulf of
Mexico and offshore Angola and Gabon in West Africa. We were formed in late
2005 by experienced industry executives and private equity investors who

and adequate funding, could acquire a deepwater prospect inventory that would
rival the supermajor oil companies.
