As offshore hydrocarbon development in the Gulf of Mexico has moved into deeper waters and more technically challenging subsurface environments, the tools to evaluate and reduce risks and potential impacts of drilling continue to evolve. Science-based decision-making, risk reduction, and identification of technology gaps are key to the responsible development of extreme offshore hydrocarbon resources. This paper specifically focuses on providing a review of data and information related to the subsurface petroleum system for the U.S. Gulf of Mexico. This information is vital to understanding the current state of knowledge about the subsurface geology and hydrocarbon system for this region, and for quantifying and assessing knowledge gaps and uncertainty. This review paper summarizes relevant peer-reviewed and open-source publications, as well as publicly available databases, focusing on regions associated with deepwater (>500' water depth) and ultra-deepwater (>5000' water depth) settings.
