b'Field natural gas that will have a price associated with it. A gas pipeline from the TEN fields to theJubilee Field was completed in the first quarter of 2017 to transport associated natural gas as well asnon-associated natural gas for processing and sale. We finalized the TAG GSA, and as a result, webooked proved gas reserves for the associated natural gas from the TEN fields in Ghana. If and when agas sales agreement and the related infrastructure are in place for the TEN fields non-associated gas, aportion of the remaining gas may be recognized as reserves.In Mauritania and Senegal, we plan to export the majority of our gas resource to the liquefiednatural gas (LNG) market. However, that plan is contingent on making final investment decisions onour gas discoveries and constructing the necessary infrastructure to produce, liquefy and transport thegas to the market as well as finding LNG purchasers. Additionally, such plans are contingent uponreceipt of required partner and government approvals.Our inability to access appropriate equipment and infrastructure in a timely manner may hinder our access tooil and natural gas markets or delay our oil and natural gas production.Our ability to market our oil and natural gas production will depend substantially on theavailability and capacity of processing facilities, oil and LNG tankers and other infrastructure, includingFPSOs, owned and operated by third parties. Our failure to obtain such facilities on acceptable termscould materially harm our business. We also rely on continuing access to drilling rigs suitable for theenvironment in which we operate. The delivery of drilling rigs may be delayed or cancelled, and wemay not be able to gain continued access to suitable rigs in the future. We may be required to shut inoil and natural gas wells because of the absence of a market or because access to processing facilitiesmay be limited or unavailable. If that were to occur, then we would be unable to realize revenue fromthose wells until arrangements were made to deliver the production to market, which could cause amaterial adverse effect on our financial condition and results of operations. In addition, the shutting inof wells can lead to mechanical problems upon bringing the production back on line, potentiallyresulting in decreased production and increased remediation costs.Additionally, the future exploitation and sale of associated and non-associated natural gas andliquids and LNG will be subject to timely commercial processing and marketing of these products,which depends on the contracting, financing, building and operating of infrastructure by third parties.The Government of Ghana completed the construction and connection of a gas pipeline from theJubilee Field and the pipeline between the Jubilee and TEN fields to transport such natural gas to themainland for processing and sale was completed in the first quarter of 2017. However, the uptime ofthe facility in future periods is not known. In the absence of the continuous removal of large quantitiesof natural gas it is anticipated that we will either need to flare such natural gas in order to maintaincrude oil production or reduce crude oil production. Currently, we have been issued permits from theGhana EPA to flare natural gas produced from the Jubilee and TEN Fields in limited quantities. If weare unable to resolve potential issues related to the continuous removal of associated natural gas inlarge quantities, our oil production will be negatively impacted.We are subject to numerous risks inherent to the exploration and production of oil and natural gas.Oil and natural gas exploration and production activities involve many risks that a combination ofexperience, knowledge and interpretation may not be able to overcome. Our future will depend on thesuccess of our exploration and production activities and on the development of an infrastructure thatwill allow us to take advantage of our discoveries. Additionally, many of our license areas are located indeepwater, which generally increases the capital and operating costs, chances of delay, planning time,technical challenges and risks associated with oil and natural gas exploration and production activities.See Our offshore and deepwater operations involve special risks that could adversely affect ourresults of operation. As a result, our oil and natural gas exploration and production activities aresubject to numerous risks, including the risk that drilling will not result in commercially viable oil and51'
