Gulf of Mexico Oil Rig Platforms & Pipelines Fishing Map (FREE)
The first StrikeLines Custom Chart, available for free!
We made this fishing map of the Gulf of Mexico offshore oil rig platforms and pipelines using Bureau of Ocean Energy Management data. It took quite a bit of effort! We had to build a relational database three tables deep just to connect a rig name to its location! Now there’s an easy to use downloadable fishing map for the Gulf of Mexico oil rigs.
BoEM, please be more like Florida and Alabama. Think of the fishermen.
Data is incomplete in this set, but where available, we included: Name, manned status, major platform status and number of beds.
When fishing pipelines, be aware that the pipe might be buried for much of its length. But the pipe occasionally rises above the sand to connect to the next section at large junction boxes. These junctions are located at regular lengths along the pipelines.
