In 1999, total Gulf of Mexico oil production reached an estimated 494 million barrels after hovering around 300 million barrels a year for much of the decade. The increase has come from the deepwater and was highlighted in late 1999, when oil production from the deepwater portion of the Gulf of Mexico exceeded that of the shallow water for the first time in history. This historic change after 53 years of production in the Gulf of Mexico has been driven by several major factors all coalescing in the late 1990's.
