Apache began hydrocarbon production off the coast of Texas at Balboa field, which it acquired through its purchase of Mariner Energy in November. "Through acquisitions completed in 2010, Apache now has both the capability in-house and the portfolio of properties in the deepwater Gulf of Mexico to exploit assets such as Balboa and add shareholder value," said John Crum, Apache's co-chief operating officer and president of North American operations.
