    Toward the end of March, Chevron announced a new find in the Gulf of Mexico, in Walker Ridge Block 98. The Coronado discovery was drilled to 31,866 ft, TVD, in 6,127 ft of water. To put the depth in perspective, 31,866 ft is the altitude at which transcontinental flights operate, or the height of 22 Empire State Buildings, or the length of 106 football fields, or the length of 2,375 compact cars parked end-to-end. By any standard, that’s deep.
