Ku-Maloob-Zaap is the most productive oil field in Mexico. Ku-Maloob-Zaap (IPA: ku maloːβ saːpʰ)is made up of three relatively large fields Ku, Maloob and Zaap which are located to the immediate northwest of the Cantarell field.
PEMEX planned to drill 82 fields and install 17 oil platforms, as well as build an oil pipeline of 166 kilometres (103 mi) to transport the oil produced. It was expected that by 2011, production would reach 800,000 barrels per day (130,000 m3/d) of oil and 282 million cubic feet per day (8.0×106 m3/d) of natural gas.
This target was met by November 2009 when Oil production reached 802,002 barrels per day (127,508.1 m3/d). Production rose to 867,000 barrels per day (137,800 m3/d) in December 2012, as a result of production declines at the Cantarell Field, Ku-Maloob-Zaap is Mexico's most productive oil field.
