The Ku-Maloob-Zaap field offshore Mexico has become the country's top producer of crude oil, surpassing production from the declining Cantarell field.
Petroleos de Mexicanos (Pemex) reached a record daily production level of 825,417 barrels of oil from the field on April 11. Average production from Ku-Maloob-Zaap in 2009 has been around 797,000 bpd. Cantarell produced an average of 787,000 bpd in the same period.

Ku-Maloob-Zaap has produced around 2.6 bn barrels of oil since Pemex began production in 1981. As of Jan. 1, Ku-Maloob-Zaap had remaining reserves of around 5.99 bn barrels of oil.
At the end of 2008, the field was producing from 130 wells.

The Ku-Maloob Zaap field runs along the coasts of Tabasco and Campeche, extending over an area of around 149.5 sq km (57.7 sq miles).
The field contains 28 platforms, including four production platforms, five accommodation platforms, 16 drilling platforms, one telecommunications platform and two processing platforms.
