Forward-Looking Statements and Risk
This report includes “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended. All statements other than statements of historical facts included or incorporated by reference in this report, including, without limitation, statements regarding the Partnership’s (as defined below in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements) future financial position, business strategy, budgets, projected revenues, projected costs and plans, and objectives of management for future operations, are forward-looking statements. Such forward-looking statements are based on the Partnership’s examination of historical operating trends, the information that was used to prepare the Partnership’s estimate of proved reserves as of December 31, 2020, and other data in its possession or available from third parties. In addition, forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “could,” “expect,” “intend,” “project,” “estimate,” “anticipate,” “plan,” “believe,” “continue,” “seek,” “guidance,” “might,” “outlook,” “possibly,” “potential,” “should,” “would,” or similar terminology. Although the Partnership believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements are reasonable under the circumstances, it can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to have been correct. Important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from the Partnership’s expectations include, but are not limited to, the Partnership’s assumptions about:
the scope, duration, and reoccurrence of any epidemics or pandemics (including specifically the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic) and the actions taken by third parties, including, but not limited to, governmental authorities, customers, contractors, and suppliers, in response to such epidemics or pandemics;
the availability and effectiveness of any vaccine programs or other therapeutics related to the treatment of COVID-19;
the market prices of oil, natural gas, natural gas liquids (NGLs), and other products or services;
the supply and demand for oil, natural gas, NGLs and other products or services;
pipeline and gathering system capacity and availability;
production and reserve levels;
drilling risks;
economic and competitive conditions;
the availability of capital resources;
capital expenditure and other contractual obligations;
weather conditions;
inflation rates;
the availability of goods and services;
legislative, regulatory, or policy changes, including environmental regulation and initiatives addressing the impact of global climate change;
terrorism or cyberattacks;
the capital markets and related risks such as general credit, liquidity, market, and interest-rate risks; and
other factors disclosed under Item 2 – “Properties — Estimated Proved Reserves and Future Net Cash Flows,” Item 7 – “Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations,” and elsewhere in the Partnership’s most recently filed Annual Report on Form 10-K and other filings that it makes with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Other factors or events that could cause the Partnership’s actual results to differ may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for the Partnership to predict all of them. All subsequent written and oral forward-looking statements attributable to the Partnership, or persons acting on its behalf, are expressly qualified in their entirety by the cautionary statements. Except as required by law, the Partnership assumes no duty to update or revise its forward-looking statements, whether based on changes in internal estimates or expectations, new information, future developments, or otherwise.

APACHE OFFSHORE INVESTMENT PARTNERSHIP
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS
(Unaudited)
Apache Offshore Investment Partnership, a Delaware general partnership (the Investment Partnership), was formed on October 31, 1983, consisting of Apache Corporation, a Delaware corporation (Apache or the Managing Partner), as Managing Partner, and public investors (the Investing Partners). The Investment Partnership invested its entire capital in Apache Offshore Petroleum Limited Partnership, a Delaware limited partnership (the Operating Partnership). The primary business of the Investment Partnership is to serve as the sole limited partner of the Operating Partnership. The accompanying financial statements include the accounts of both the Investment Partnership and the Operating Partnership. The term “Partnership,” as used herein, refers to the Investment Partnership or the Operating Partnership, as the case may be.
These financial statements have been prepared by the Partnership, without audit, pursuant to the rules and regulations of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). They reflect all adjustments that are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the results for the interim periods, on a basis consistent with the annual audited financial statements. Certain information, accounting policies, and footnote disclosures normally included in financial statements prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (U.S. GAAP) have been omitted pursuant to such rules and regulations, although the Partnership believes that the disclosures are adequate to make the information presented not misleading. These financial statements should be read in conjunction with the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020, which contains a summary of the Partnership’s significant accounting policies and other disclosures.
1.    SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES
As of March 31, 2021, the Partnership’s significant accounting policies are consistent with those discussed in Note 2 of its consolidated financial statements contained in the Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.
Use of Estimates
The preparation of financial statements in conformity with U.S. GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Significant estimates with regard to these financial statements include the estimate of proved oil and gas reserve quantities and the related present value of estimated future net cash flows therefrom and the assessment of asset retirement obligations. Actual results could differ from those estimates.
Oil and Gas Property
The Partnership follows the full-cost method of accounting for its oil and gas property. Under this method of accounting, all costs incurred for both successful and unsuccessful exploration and development activities, and oil and gas property acquisitions are capitalized. The net book value of oil and gas properties may not exceed a calculated “ceiling.” The ceiling limitation is the estimated future net cash flows from proved oil and gas reserves, discounted at 10 percent per annum. Estimated future net cash flows are calculated using end-of-period costs and an unweighted arithmetic average of commodity prices in effect on the first day of each of the previous 12 months, held flat for the life of the production, except where prices are defined by contractual arrangements. For a discussion of the calculation of estimated future net cash flows, please refer to Note 10—Supplemental Oil and Gas Disclosures (Unaudited) to the consolidated financial statements contained in the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.

Any excess of the net book value of proved oil and gas properties over the ceiling is charged to expense and reflected as “Additional depreciation, depletion and amortization” in the accompanying statement of consolidated operations. Such limitations are tested quarterly. The Partnership had 0 write-downs of the carrying value of its proved oil and gas properties during the first three months of 2021 and 2020.
5


Revenue Recognition
There have been no significant changes to the Partnership’s contracts with customers during the three months ended March 31, 2021. The Partnership generates revenue from its contracts with customers from the sale of its crude oil, natural gas, and NGL production volumes. Under these short-term commodity sales contracts, the physical delivery of each unit of quantity represents a single, distinct performance obligation on behalf of the Partnership. Contract prices are determined based on market-indexed prices, adjusted for quality, transportation, and other market-reflective differentials. Revenue is measured by allocating an entirely variable market price to each performance obligation and recognized at a point in time when control is transferred to the customer. The Partnership considers a variety of facts and circumstances in assessing the point of control transfer, including but not limited to whether the purchaser can direct the use of the hydrocarbons, the transfer of significant risks and rewards, and the Partnership’s right to payment. Control typically transfers to customers upon the physical delivery at specified locations within each contract and the transfer of title.
The table below presents revenues from contracts with customers disaggregated by product type for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020:
 For the Three Months Ended March 31,
 20212020
Oil$225,221 $204,469 
Gas27,600 21,457 
NGLs7,066 5,568 
Total Oil and Gas Revenue$259,887 $231,494 
In accordance with the provisions of Accounting Standards Codification 606, variable market prices for each short-term commodity sale are allocated entirely to each performance obligation as the terms of payment relate specifically to the Partnership’s efforts to satisfy its obligations. As such, the Partnership has elected the practical expedients available under the standard to not disclose the aggregate transaction price allocated to unsatisfied, or partially unsatisfied, performance obligations as of the end of the reporting period. Payment terms under all contracts with customers are typically due and received within a short-term period of one year or less, after physical delivery of the product or service has been rendered.
The Partnership records trade accounts receivable for its unconditional rights to consideration arising under sales contracts with customers. The carrying value of such receivables represents estimated net realizable value. The Partnership routinely assesses the collectability of all material trade and other receivables. The Partnership accrues a reserve on a receivable when, based on the judgment of management, it is probable that a receivable will not be collected and the amount of any reserve may be reasonably estimated. As of March 31, 2021, the carrying amounts of trade accounts receivables approximate fair value because of the short-term nature of these instruments. Receivables from contracts with customers totaled $99,607 and $95,590 as of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, respectively. The Partnership had 0 allowance for doubtful accounts recorded for any comparative period presented.
2.    RECEIVABLE FROM / PAYABLE TO APACHE CORPORATION
The receivable from/payable to Apache represents the net result of the Investing Partners’ revenue received and expenditures paid in the current month. Generally, cash in this amount will be paid by Apache to the Partnership or transferred to Apache in the month after the Partnership’s transactions are processed and the net results of operations are determined.
6


3.    ASSET RETIREMENT OBLIGATIONS
The following table describes the changes to the Partnership’s asset retirement obligation liability for the first three months of 2021:
Asset retirement obligation at December 31, 2020$1,384,524 
Accretion expense12,589 
Liabilities settled(17,216)
Asset retirement obligation at March 31, 20211,379,897 
Less current portion(509,224)
Asset retirement obligation, long-term$870,673 
Liabilities settled during the three months ended March 31, 2021 relate to costs for well abandonment and platform removal at Ship Shoal 258/259.
4.    FAIR VALUE MEASUREMENTS
Certain assets and liabilities are reported at fair value on a recurring basis in the Partnership’s consolidated balance sheet. As of March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the carrying amounts of the Partnership’s current assets and current liabilities approximated fair value because of the short-term nature or maturity of these instruments.
The Partnership did not use derivative financial instruments or otherwise engage in hedging activities during the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.
5.    NOTICE OF WITHDRAWAL AND RIGHT OF PRESENTMENT
On March 22, 2019, Apache, as the Managing Partner of the Investment Partnership, gave notice of its intention to withdraw as Managing Partner of the Investment Partnership. The notice described the withdrawal process and certain notice periods required by that process. No party assumed the role of Managing Partner within the 120-day notice period specified by the notice of intention to withdraw. Consequently, Apache will oversee the process of winding up and liquidating the business and affairs of the Investment Partnership. Apache has not made a decision as to when it will complete the process to withdraw as Managing Partner.
On April 26, 2019, the Managing Partner determined that, during the withdrawal and dissolution process, it would be inconsistent with the Managing Partner’s fiduciary duties to purchase (or to cause the Investment Partnership to purchase) outstanding units of partnership interests (Units) from the holders thereof pursuant to the right of presentment provided for in Sections 6.9 through 6.14 of the Partnership Agreement of the Investment Partnership (the Partnership Agreement). As a result of this determination by the Managing Partner, pursuant to Section 6.12 of the Partnership Agreement, the right of presentment has been terminated and Sections 6.9 through 6.14 have “become null and void and of no further force or effect” as provided in Section 6.12.
Prior to terminating the right of presentment, the Investment Partnership had not made a repurchase under the right of presentment since 2008.
6.    FINANCIAL CONDITION OF THE OPERATOR OF THE PARTNERSHIP’S PRODUCING LEASE
On August 3, 2020, Fieldwood Energy LLC, the current operator of the Partnership’s producing lease, and certain of its affiliated debtors (collectively, “Fieldwood”) filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (Case No. 20-33948). Fieldwood has submitted a plan of reorganization, and the Partnership’s Managing Partner has been engaged in discussions with Fieldwood and other interested parties regarding such plan. However, as of the date of this report, the Partnership does not know if, or to what extent, Fieldwood will continue to perform its obligations with respect to the Partnership’s properties. The outcome of Fieldwood’s bankruptcy could have a material adverse effect on the Partnership’s results of operations. No evaluation of the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome or associated economic loss can be made; therefore, no liability has been recorded on the Partnership’s consolidated financial statements.

ITEM 2.    MANAGEMENT’S DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS OF FINANCIAL CONDITION AND RESULTS OF OPERATIONS
The following discussion relates to Apache Offshore Investment Partnership (the Partnership) and should be read in conjunction with the Partnership’s consolidated financial statements and accompanying notes included under Part I, Item 1, “Financial Statements” of this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q, as well as the Partnership’s consolidated financial statements, accompanying notes and related Management’s Discussion and Analysis of Financial Condition and Results of Operations, included in its Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.
The Partnership’s business is participation in oil and gas development and production activities on federal lease tracts in the Gulf of Mexico, offshore Louisiana.
Results of Operations
Net Income and Revenue
The Partnership reported a net loss of $63,840 ($65 per Investing Partner Unit) for the first quarter of 2021 compared to a net loss of $21,657 ($25 per Investing Partner Unit) in the first quarter of 2020.
Total revenues in the first quarter of 2021 increased 4 percent from the first quarter of 2020, primarily the result of higher crude oil and gas realized prices. The increase in realized prices was primarily the result of increased economic activity during the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same prior year period when commodity prices collapsed as a result of economic uncertainty stemming from the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. The Partnership’s crude oil, natural gas, and NGLs production volume and price information is summarized in the following table (gas volumes are presented in thousand cubic feet (Mcf) per day):
 
 For the Three Months Ended March 31,
20212020Increase
(Decrease)
Gas volume – Mcf per day116 119 (3)%
Average gas price – per Mcf$2.65 $1.99 33 %
Oil volume – barrels per day48 50 (4)%
Average oil price – per barrel$52.29 $44.58 17 %
NGL volume – barrels per day— %
Average NGL price – per barrel$17.56 $14.96 17 %
Oil and Gas Sales
The Partnership’s crude oil sales for the first quarter of 2021 totaled $225,221, increasing 10 percent compared to $204,469 in the first quarter of 2020. The Partnership’s average realized oil price in the first quarter of 2021 increased $7.71 per barrel from the first quarter of 2020, increasing sales by $35,360. Crude oil volumes decreased to 48 barrels per day in the first quarter of 2021, compared to 50 barrels per day in the prior year period, primarily from natural declines at South Timbalier 295. The decrease in production reduced oil sales by $14,608.
Natural gas sales of $27,600 were recognized in the first quarter of 2021, up 29 percent from the amount realized for the equivalent 2020 period. The Partnership’s average realized natural gas price for the quarter increased $0.66 per Mcf, or 33 percent, from the first quarter of 2020, increasing sales by $7,120. Natural gas volumes decreased 3 percent from the first quarter of 2020, reducing sales revenue by $977.
The Partnership sold an average of 4 barrels per day of NGL in the first three months of 2021, unchanged from the average of 4 barrels per day in the first three months of 2020. NGL revenues increased as the result of 17 percent higher average realized NGL prices during the first three months of 2021 compared to the same prior year period.
Since the Partnership does not anticipate acquiring additional acreage or conducting exploratory drilling on leases in which it currently holds an interest, declines in oil and gas production can be expected in future periods as a result of natural depletion. Also, given the small number of producing wells owned by the Partnership and exposure to inclement weather and pipeline interruptions in the Gulf of Mexico, the Partnership’s production may be subject to more volatility than those companies with a larger or more diversified property portfolio.
8


Operating Expenses
The Partnership’s depreciation, depletion and amortization (DD&A), expressed as a percentage of oil and gas sales, was approximately 38 percent for the first three months of 2021 compared to approximately 28 percent for the first three months of 2020. The higher depletion percentage was primarily the result of higher sales revenue for the quarter and lower estimated future gross revenues from proved oil and gas reserves, which are based on an unweighted arithmetic average of commodity prices in effect for the first day of each of the previous 12 months, held flat for the life of expected production.
Under the full cost method of accounting, the Partnership is required to review the carrying value of its proved oil and gas properties each quarter. Under these rules, capitalized costs of oil and gas properties, net of accumulated DD&A, may not exceed the present value of estimated future net cash flows from proved oil and gas reserves discounted at 10 percent per annum. Estimated future net cash flows are calculated using end-of-period costs and an unweighted arithmetic average of commodity prices in effect on the first day of each of the previous 12 months, held flat for the life of the production, except where prices are defined by contractual arrangements. The Partnership had no write-downs of the carrying value of its oil and gas properties during the first three months of 2021 and 2020.
Lease operating expenses (LOE) for the first three months of 2021 totaled $135,057, up 25 percent from the same prior year period, primarily the result of increased repair and maintenance work incurred during the period related to weather events. Gathering and transportation costs for the delivery of oil and gas totaled $4,246 in the first three months of 2021, a decrease of 15 percent from the first quarter of 2020. Administrative expenses for the first three months of 2021 were 12 percent lower compared to the same prior year period.
Capital Resources and Liquidity
The Partnership’s primary capital resource is net cash provided by operating activities. During the first three months of 2021, the Partnership had $23,809 of net cash inflow from operating activities, compared to $194,290 of net cash outflow in the first three months of 2020. The increase in operating cash flows was primarily the result of reduced plugging and abandonment spending at Ship Shoal 258/259 compared to the same prior year period.
At March 31, 2021, the Partnership had approximately $4.5 million in cash and cash equivalents, slightly higher from the year ended December 31, 2020. The Partnership’s goal is to maintain cash and cash equivalents at least sufficient to cover the undiscounted value of its future asset retirement obligation liability. The Partnership also plans to reserve funds for repairs which may disrupt the Partnership’s production and for future recompletion operations.
The Partnership’s future financial condition, results of operations, and cash from operating activities will largely depend upon prices received for its oil and natural gas production. A substantial portion of the Partnership’s production is sold under market-sensitive contracts. Prices for oil and natural gas are subject to fluctuations in response to changes in supply, market uncertainty, and a variety of factors beyond the Partnership’s control. These factors include worldwide political and economic conditions, the foreign and domestic supply of oil and natural gas, the price of foreign imports, the level of consumer demand, weather, and the price and availability of alternative fuels.
The Partnership’s oil and gas reserves and production will also significantly impact future results of operations and cash from operating activities. The Partnership’s production is subject to fluctuations in response to remaining quantities of oil and gas reserves, weather, pipeline capacity, consumer demand, mechanical well performance and workovers, and recompletion activities. Declines in oil and gas production can be expected in future years as a result of normal depletion and the non-participation in acquisition or exploration activities by the Partnership.
Based on production estimates from independent engineers and existing cash balances reserved for platform dismantlement and abandonment activities, current market conditions resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic are not expected to materially impact the Partnership’s liquidity. The Partnership forecasts it will be able to meet its liquidity needs for routine operations in 2021, although volatile oil and gas prices and consumer demand resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic could decrease revenue and could require the Partnership to further reduce its cash and cash equivalents.
In the event that future short-term operating cash requirements are greater than the Partnership’s financial resources, the Partnership may seek short-term, interest-bearing advances from the Managing Partner as needed. The Managing Partner, however, is not obligated to make loans to the Partnership. The Partnership does not intend to incur debt from banks or other outside sources nor solicit capital from existing Unit holders or in the open market.
On an ongoing basis, the Partnership reviews the possible sale of lower value properties prior to incurring associated dismantlement and abandonment costs. The Partnership did not sell any properties in the first three months of 2021 and 2020.
9


Capital Commitments and Contingencies
The Partnership’s primary needs for cash are for operating expenses, recompletion expenditures, and future dismantlement and abandonment costs. To the extent there is discretion, the Partnership allocates available capital to investment in the Partnership’s properties so as to maximize production and resultant cash flow. The Partnership had no outstanding debt or lease commitments at March 31, 2021. The Partnership did not have any contractual obligations as of March 31, 2021, other than the liability for dismantlement and abandonment costs of its oil and gas properties. The Partnership has recorded a separate liability for this asset retirement obligation as discussed in the Notes to the Financial Statements included in the Partnership’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2020.
During the first three months of 2021, the Partnership spent $17,216 to plug and abandon wells and remove platforms at Ship Shoal 258/259. The Partnership anticipates $509,224 of costs will be spent during the next twelve months, primarily to dismantle platforms at North Padre Island 969/976. Based on information available to the Partnership, it anticipates minimal capital expenditures during the remainder of 2021 for recompletions and other capital projects at South Timbalier 295. Such estimates may change based on realized oil and gas prices, recompletion results, weather disruptions, rates charged by contractors or changes by the operator to their development or abandonment plans.
On August 3, 2020, Fieldwood Energy LLC, the current operator of the Partnership’s producing lease, and certain of its affiliated debtors (collectively, “Fieldwood”) filed a voluntary petition for relief under Chapter 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas (Case No. 20-33948). Fieldwood has submitted a plan of reorganization, and the Partnership’s Managing Partner has been engaged in discussions with Fieldwood and other interested parties regarding such plan. However, as of the date of this report, the Partnership does not know if, or to what extent, Fieldwood will continue to perform its obligations with respect to the Partnership’s properties. The outcome of Fieldwood’s bankruptcy could have a material adverse effect on the Partnership’s results of operations. No evaluation of the likelihood of an unfavorable outcome or associated economic loss can be made; therefore, no liability has been recorded on the Partnership’s consolidated financial statements.
Notice of Withdrawal and Right of Presentment
On March 22, 2019, Apache, as the Managing Partner of the Investment Partnership, gave notice of its intention to withdraw as Managing Partner of the Investment Partnership. The notice described the withdrawal process and certain notice periods required by that process. No party assumed the role of Managing Partner within the 120-day notice period specified by the notice of intention to withdraw. Consequently, Apache will oversee the process of winding up and liquidating the business and affairs of the Investment Partnership. Apache has not made a decision as to when it will complete the process to withdraw as Managing Partner.
On April 26, 2019, the Managing Partner determined that, during the withdrawal and dissolution process, it would be inconsistent with the Managing Partner’s fiduciary duties to purchase (or to cause the Investment Partnership to purchase) outstanding Units from the holders thereof pursuant to the right of presentment provided for in Sections 6.9 through 6.14 of the Partnership Agreement of the Investment Partnership (the Partnership Agreement). As a result of this determination by the Managing Partner, pursuant to Section 6.12 of the Partnership Agreement, the right of presentment has been terminated and Sections 6.9 through 6.14 have “become null and void and of no further force or effect” as provided in Section 6.12.
Prior to terminating the right of presentment, the Investment Partnership had not made a repurchase under the right of presentment since 2008.
