In August 2012, INPEX acquired an interest in the Lucius Deepwater Project in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico from U.S.-based Anadarko Petroleum Corporation (currently Occidental Petroleum Corporation) and joined the development and production activities in that oil field. Oil and gas production at the Lucius Oil Field has proceeded steadily since its commencement in January 2015. The Hadrian North Oil Field is adjacent to the Lucius Oil Field and, with the unitization of the two oils fields in 2017, it was decided that the Hadrian North Oil Field will be jointly developed using the production facilities at the Lucius Oil Field. Crude oil and gas production at the Hadrian North Oil Field has proceeded steadily since its commencement in April 2019. In February 2021, INPEX additionally acquired a portion (approximately 2.35%) of the participating interest previously held by ExxonMobil. INPEX is also conducting exploration activities in multiple blocks in the Mexican sector of the Gulf of Mexico.
