NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
1.  Basis of Presentation                    
The financial statements included in this report reflect all normal and recurring adjustments which, in the opinion of management, are necessary for a fair presentation of our consolidated financial position at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, the consolidated results of operations for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020, and consolidated cash flows for the three months ended March 31, 2021 and 2020.  The unaudited results of operations for the interim periods reported are not necessarily indicative of results to be expected for the full year.
The financial statements were prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) for interim reporting.  As permitted under those rules, certain notes or other financial information that are normally required by generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) in the United States have been condensed or omitted from these interim financial statements.  These statements, therefore, should be read in conjunction with the consolidated financial statements and related notes included in the Corporation’s Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
 2.  Inventories
Inventories consisted of the following:
March 31,

December 31,
2020
 (In millions)
Crude oil and natural gas liquids$46 $226 
Materials and supplies173 152 
Total Inventories$219 $378 
At December 31, 2020, crude oil inventories included $164 million associated with the cost of 4.2 million barrels of crude oil transported and stored on two chartered very large crude carriers (VLCCs) for sale in Asian markets. The two VLCC cargos were sold in the first quarter of 2021.
In the first quarter of 2020, we recognized charges of $53 million ($52 million after income taxes) in Marketing, including purchased oil and gas to reflect crude oil inventories at net realizable value.
3.  Property, Plant and Equipment
Assets Held for Sale:
In March 2021, we entered into an agreement to sell our interests in Denmark for total consideration of $150 million with an effective date of January 1, 2021. At March 31, 2021, property, plant and equipment and operating lease right-of-use assets totaling $229 million, and asset retirement obligations and operating lease liabilities totaling $138 million, associated with our interests in Denmark were presented as Assets held for sale and as liabilities held for sale within Accrued Liabilities, respectively, in our Consolidated Balance Sheet.
Capitalized Exploratory Well Costs:  
The following table discloses the net changes in capitalized exploratory well costs pending determination of proved reserves during the three months ended March 31, 2021 (in millions):
Balance at January 1, 2021$459 
Additions to capitalized exploratory well costs pending the determination of proved reserves17 
Balance at March 31, 2021$476 
Capitalized exploratory well costs capitalized for greater than one year following completion of drilling were $375 million at March 31, 2021 and primarily related to:  
Guyana: Approximately 85% of the capitalized well costs in excess of one year relate to successful exploration wells where hydrocarbons were encountered on the Stabroek Block (Hess 30%), offshore Guyana.  The operator plans further appraisal drilling and is conducting pre-development planning for additional phases of development beyond the three previously sanctioned development projects on the Block.

HESS CORPORATION AND CONSOLIDATED SUBSIDIARIES
NOTES TO CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (UNAUDITED)
Joint Development Area (JDA):  Approximately 10% of the capitalized well costs in excess of one year relates to the JDA (Hess 50%) in the Gulf of Thailand, where hydrocarbons were encountered in three successful exploration wells drilled in the western part of Block A-18.  The operator has submitted a development plan concept to the regulator to facilitate ongoing commercial negotiations for an extension of the existing gas sales contract to include development of the western part of the Block.
Malaysia:  Approximately 5% of the capitalized well costs in excess of one year relate to the North Malay Basin (Hess 50%), offshore Peninsular Malaysia, where hydrocarbons were encountered in one successful exploration well.  Subsurface evaluation and pre-development studies are ongoing.
4.  Hess Midstream LP
In March 2021, the Corporation received net proceeds of $70 million from the public offering of 3,450,000 Hess-owned Class A shares in Hess Midstream LP. The transaction resulted in an increase in Capital in Excess of Par of $56 million and Noncontrolling Interests of $41 million including $14 million from the change in ownership and $27 million from the recognition of a deferred tax asset due to an increase in tax basis of Hess Midstream LP's investment in Hess Midstream Operations LP. After giving effect to this transaction, the Corporation owns an approximate 46% interest in Hess Midstream LP, on a consolidated basis.
At March 31, 2021 Hess Midstream LP, a variable interest entity that is fully consolidated by Hess Corporation, had liabilities totaling $1,984 million (December 31, 2020: $2,026 million) that are on a nonrecourse basis to Hess Corporation, while Hess Midstream LP assets available to settle the obligations of Hess Midstream LP include cash and cash equivalents totaling $2 million (December 31, 2020: $3 million), property, plant and equipment with a carrying value of $3,095 million (December 31, 2020: $3,111 million) and an equity-method investment of $104 million (December 31, 2020: $108 million) in the Little Missouri 4 gas processing plant.

10.  Guarantees and Contingencies
We are subject to loss contingencies with respect to various claims, lawsuits and other proceedings. A liability is recognized in our consolidated financial statements when it is probable that a loss has been incurred and the amount can be reasonably estimated. If the risk of loss is probable, but the amount cannot be reasonably estimated or the risk of loss is only reasonably possible, a liability is not accrued; however, we disclose the nature of those contingencies. We cannot predict with certainty if, how or when existing claims, lawsuits and proceedings will be resolved or what the eventual relief, if any, may be, particularly for proceedings that are in their early stages of development or where plaintiffs seek indeterminate damages.
We, along with many companies that have been or continue to be engaged in refining and marketing of gasoline, have been a party to lawsuits and claims related to the use of methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) in gasoline. A series of similar lawsuits, many involving water utilities or governmental entities, were filed in jurisdictions across the U.S. against producers of MTBE and petroleum refiners who produced gasoline containing MTBE, including us. The principal allegation in all cases was that gasoline containing MTBE was a defective product and that these producers and refiners are strictly liable in proportion to their share of the gasoline market for damage to groundwater resources and are required to take remedial action to ameliorate the alleged effects on the environment of releases of MTBE. The majority of the cases asserted against us have been settled. There are three remaining active cases, filed by Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, and Maryland. In June 2014, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania filed a lawsuit alleging that we and all major oil companies with operations in Pennsylvania, have damaged the groundwater by introducing thereto gasoline with MTBE. The Pennsylvania suit has been forwarded to the existing MTBE multidistrict litigation pending in the Southern District of New York. In September 2016, the State of Rhode Island also filed a lawsuit alleging that we and other major oil companies damaged the groundwater in Rhode Island by introducing thereto gasoline with MTBE. The suit filed in Rhode Island is proceeding in federal court. In December 2017, the State of Maryland filed a lawsuit alleging that we and other major oil companies damaged the groundwater in Maryland by introducing thereto gasoline with MTBE. The suit, filed in Maryland state court, was served on us in January 2018 and has been removed to federal court by the defendants.
In September 2003, we received a directive from the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) to remediate contamination in the sediments of the Lower Passaic River. The NJDEP is also seeking natural resource damages. The directive, insofar as it affects us, relates to alleged releases from a petroleum bulk storage terminal in Newark, New Jersey we previously owned. We and over 70 companies entered into an Administrative Order on Consent with the EPA to study the same contamination; this work remains ongoing. We and other parties settled a cost recovery claim by the State of New Jersey and agreed with the EPA to fund remediation of a portion of the site. On March 4, 2016, the EPA issued a Record of Decision (ROD) in respect of the lower eight miles of the Lower Passaic River, selecting a remedy that includes bank-to-bank dredging at an estimated cost of $1.38 billion. The ROD does not address the upper nine miles of the Lower Passaic River or the Newark Bay, which may require additional remedial action. In addition, the federal trustees for natural resources have begun a separate assessment of damages to natural resources in the Passaic River. Given that the EPA has not selected a remedy for the entirety of the Lower Passaic River or the Newark Bay, total remedial costs cannot be reliably estimated at this time. Based on currently known facts and circumstances, we do not believe that this matter will result in a significant liability to us because our former terminal did not store or use contaminants which are of concern in the river sediments and could not have contributed contamination along the river’s length. Further, there are numerous other parties who we expect will bear the cost of remediation and damages.
In March 2014, we received an Administrative Order from the EPA requiring us and 26 other parties to undertake the Remedial Design for the remedy selected by the EPA for the Gowanus Canal Superfund Site in Brooklyn, New York. Our alleged liability derives from our former ownership and operation of a fuel oil terminal and connected shipbuilding and repair facility adjacent to the Canal. The remedy selected by the EPA includes dredging of surface sediments and the placement of a cap over the deeper sediments throughout the Canal and in-situ stabilization of certain contaminated sediments that will remain in place below the cap. The EPA’s original estimate was that this remedy would cost $506 million; however, the ultimate costs that will be incurred in connection with the design and implementation of the remedy remain uncertain. We have complied with the EPA’s March 2014 Administrative Order and contributed funding for the Remedial Design based on an allocation of costs among the parties determined by a third-party expert. In January 2020, we received an additional Administrative Order from the EPA requiring us and several other parties to begin Remedial Action along the uppermost portion of the Canal. We intend to comply with this Administrative Order. The remediation work began in the fourth quarter of 2020. Based on currently known facts and circumstances, we do not believe that this matter will result in a significant liability to us, and the costs will continue to be allocated amongst the parties, as they were for the Remedial Design.
From time to time, we are involved in other judicial and administrative proceedings relating to environmental matters. We periodically receive notices from the EPA that we are a “potential responsible party” under the Superfund legislation with respect to various waste disposal sites. Under this legislation, all potentially responsible parties may be jointly and severally liable. For any site for which we have received such a notice, the EPA’s claims or assertions of liability against us relating to these sites have not been fully developed, or the EPA’s claims have been settled or a settlement is under consideration, in all cases for amounts that are not

material. Beginning in 2017, certain states, municipalities and private associations in California, Delaware, Maryland, Rhode Island and South Carolina separately filed lawsuits against oil, gas and coal producers, including us, for alleged damages purportedly caused by climate change. These proceedings include claims for monetary damages and injunctive relief. Beginning in 2013, various parishes in Louisiana filed suit against approximately 100 oil and gas companies, including us, alleging that the companies’ operations and activities in certain fields violated the State and Local Coastal Resource Management Act of 1978, as amended, and caused contamination, subsidence and other environmental damages to land and water bodies located in the coastal zone of Louisiana. The plaintiffs seek, among other things, the payment of the costs necessary to clear, re-vegetate and otherwise restore the allegedly impacted areas. The ultimate impact of such climate and other aforementioned environmental proceedings, and of any related proceedings by private parties, on our business or accounts cannot be predicted at this time due to the large number of other potentially responsible parties and the speculative nature of clean-up cost estimates.
We are also involved in other judicial and administrative proceedings from time to time in addition to the matters described above, including claims related to post-production deductions from royalty payments. We cannot predict with certainty if, how or when such proceedings will be resolved or what the eventual relief, if any, may be, particularly for proceedings that are in their early stages of development or where plaintiffs seek indeterminate damages. Numerous issues may need to be resolved, including through potentially lengthy discovery and determination of important factual matters before a loss or range of loss can be reasonably estimated for any proceeding.
Subject to the foregoing, in management’s opinion, based upon currently known facts and circumstances, the outcome of lawsuits, claims and proceedings, including the matters disclosed above, is not expected to have a material adverse effect on our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. However, we could incur judgments, enter into settlements, or revise our opinion regarding the outcome of certain matters, and such developments could have a material adverse effect on our results of operations in the period in which the amounts are accrued and our cash flows in the period in which the amounts are paid.

12.  Financial Risk Management Activities
In the normal course of our business, we are exposed to commodity risks related to changes in the prices of crude oil and natural gas. Financial risk management activities include transactions designed to reduce risk in the selling prices of crude oil or natural gas we produce or by reducing our exposure to foreign currency or interest rate movements. Generally, futures, swaps or option strategies may be used to fix the forward selling price or establish a floor price for a portion of our crude oil or natural gas production. Swaps may also be used to fix the difference between current selling prices and forward selling prices in periods of contango for crude oil production that will be stored and sold in the future. Forward contracts may also be used to purchase certain currencies in which we conduct business with the intent of reducing exposure to foreign currency fluctuations. At March 31, 2021, these forward contracts relate to the British Pound, Danish Krone, Canadian Dollar and Malaysian Ringgit. Interest rate swaps may be used to convert interest payments on certain long-term debt from fixed to floating rates.

During the first quarter of 2021, we completed the sale of 4.2 million barrels of Bakken crude oil transported and stored on two VLCCs during 2020 for sale in Asian markets. We recognized net losses of $4 million from crude oil hedging contracts associated with the VLCC volumes in the first quarter of 2021.
The fair value of our crude oil put options and crude oil swaps is presented within Other current assets and Accrued liabilities, respectively, in our Consolidated Balance Sheet. The fair value of our interest rate swaps is presented within Other assets in our Consolidated Balance Sheet. The fair value of our foreign exchange forwards is presented within Accrued liabilities in our Consolidated Balance Sheet. All fair values in the table above are based on Level 2 inputs.
Derivative contracts designated as hedging instruments:
Crude oil derivatives:  Crude oil hedging contracts decreased Sales and other operating revenues by $51 million in the first quarter of 2021, including hedge contracts associated with the VLCC transactions, and increased Sales and other operating revenues by $64 million in the first quarter of 2020. At March 31, 2021, pre-tax deferred losses in Accumulated other comprehensive income (loss) related to outstanding crude oil price hedging contracts were $47 million, all of which will be reclassified into earnings during the remainder of 2021 as the originally hedged crude oil sales are recognized in earnings.
Interest rate swaps designated as fair value hedges:  At March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020, we had interest rate swaps with gross notional amounts totaling $100 million, which were designated as fair value hedges and relate to debt where we have converted interest payments from fixed to floating rates.  Changes in the fair value of interest rate swaps and the hedged fixed-rate debt are recorded in Interest expense in the Statement of Consolidated Income.  In the three months ended March 31, 2021, the change in fair value of interest rate swaps was a decrease in the asset of $1 million (2020 Q1: increase in the asset of $5 million) with a corresponding adjustment in the carrying value of the hedged fixed-rate debt.
Derivative contracts not designated as hedging instruments:
Foreign exchange:  Foreign exchange gains and losses which are reported in Other, net in Revenues and non-operating income in the Statement of Consolidated Income were losses of $1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2021 (2020 Q1: $1 million loss).  A component of foreign exchange gains and losses is the result of foreign exchange derivative contracts that are not designated as hedges which amounted to net losses of $1 million in the three months ended March 31, 2021 (2020 Q1: $2 million gain).

Fair Value Measurement:
At March 31, 2021, our total long-term debt, which was substantially comprised of fixed rate debt instruments, had a carrying value of $8,286 million and a fair value of $9,381 million, based on Level 2 inputs in the fair value measurement hierarchy. We also have short-term financial instruments, primarily cash equivalents, accounts receivable, and accounts payable, for which the carrying value approximated fair value at March 31, 2021 and December 31, 2020.

On April 30, 2021, we completed the sale of our previously announced Little Knife and Murphy Creek nonstrategic acreage interests in the Bakken for total consideration of $312 million with an effective date of March 1, 2021. The sale included approximately 78,700 net acres, which are located in the southernmost portion of the Corporation's Bakken position and are not connected to Hess Midstream LP infrastructure. Net production from the acreage during the first quarter of 2021 was approximately 4,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day (boepd).
On April 13, 2021, we amended the Corporation's fully undrawn $3.5 billion revolving credit facility by extending the facility's expiration date for one year to May 2024 and incorporating customary provisions for the eventual replacement of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR).

Risk Factors of our Annual Report on Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2020.
Overview
Hess Corporation is a global E&P company engaged in exploration, development, production, transportation, purchase and sale of crude oil, natural gas liquids, and natural gas with production operations located primarily in the United States (U.S.), Guyana, the Malaysia/Thailand Joint Development Area (JDA), Malaysia, and Denmark. We conduct exploration activities primarily offshore Guyana, in the U.S. Gulf of Mexico, and offshore Suriname and Canada. At the Stabroek Block (Hess 30%), offshore Guyana, we have announced eighteen significant discoveries. The Liza Phase 1 development achieved first production in December 2019, and has a nameplate production capacity of approximately 120,000 gross bopd. The Liza Phase 2 development was sanctioned in the second quarter of 2019 and remains on track to achieve first production by early 2022, with production capacity of approximately 220,000 gross bopd. A third development, Payara, was sanctioned in the third quarter of 2020 and is expected to achieve first production in 2024, with production capacity of approximately 220,000 gross bopd. The discovered resources to date on the Stabroek Block are expected to underpin up to ten floating production, storage and offloading vessels (FPSOs) with the first six FPSOs expected by 2027.
Our Midstream operating segment, which is comprised of Hess Corporation’s approximate 46% consolidated ownership interest in Hess Midstream LP at March 31, 2021, provides fee-based services, including gathering, compressing and processing natural gas and fractionating natural gas liquids (NGL); gathering, terminaling, loading and transporting crude oil and NGL; storing and terminaling propane, and water handling services primarily in the Bakken shale play in the Williston Basin area of North Dakota. See Note 4, Hess Midstream LP in the Notes to Consolidated Financial Statements.
Hess Response to Global Pandemic
COVID-19 continues to have a profound impact on society and industry. The Corporation’s first priority in the midst of the pandemic has been the health and safety of the Hess workforce and local communities where the Corporation operates. A multidisciplinary Hess emergency response team has been overseeing plans and precautions to reduce the risks of COVID-19 in the work environment while maintaining business continuity based on the most current recommendations by government and public health agencies. The Corporation has implemented a variety of health and safety measures including enhanced cleaning procedures and modified work practices such as travel restrictions, health screenings, reduced personnel at offshore platforms and onshore work sites wherever this can be done safely, and remote working arrangements for office workers.
First Quarter Outlook
The 2021 E&P capital and exploratory expenditure budget is $1.9 billion, with more than 80% allocated to Guyana and the Bakken. Oil and gas production in 2021, excluding Libya, is now forecast to be in the range of 290,000 boepd to 295,000 boepd. For the remainder of 2021, we have hedged 120,000 bopd with $55 WTI put options and 30,000 bopd with $60 Brent put options.
In March 2021, the Corporation received net proceeds of $70 million for the public offering of 3,450,000 Class A shares of Hess Midstream LP. In March 2021, we entered into an agreement to sell our interests in Denmark for total consideration of $150 million, with an effective date of January 1, 2021. The sale is expected to close during the third quarter of 2021, subject to customary closing conditions. On April 30, 2021, we completed the sale of our previously announced Little Knife and Murphy Creek nonstrategic acreage interests in the Bakken for total consideration of $312 million, with an effective date of March 1, 2021.
Net cash provided by operating activities was $591 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared with $445 million in the first quarter of 2020.  Net cash provided by operating activities before changes in operating assets and liabilities was $815 million in the first quarter of 2021 and $502 million in the first quarter of 2020.  Capital expenditures were $303 million in the first quarter of 2021 and $666 million in the first quarter of 2020. Excluding our Midstream segment, we ended the first quarter of 2021 with approximately $1.86 billion in cash and cash equivalents. In 2021, based on current forward strip crude oil prices, we expect cash flow from operating activities, expected proceeds from asset sales, and cash and cash equivalents at March 31, 2021 will be sufficient to fund our capital investment program and dividends. We may take any of the following steps, or a combination thereof, to improve our liquidity and financial position: reduce the planned capital program and other cash outlays, including dividends, pursue asset sales, borrow against our committed revolving credit facility, or issue debt or equity securities.

Overview (continued)
First Quarter Results
Net income was $252 million in the first quarter of 2021, compared with a net loss of $2,433 million in the first quarter of 2020.  Excluding items affecting comparability of earnings between periods detailed on page 24, we incurred an adjusted net loss of $182 million in the first quarter of 2020.  The improvement in first quarter 2021 results against adjusted results for the prior-year quarter is primarily due to higher realized selling prices, contribution from the sale of two VLCC cargos, and lower depletion, depreciation and amortization expenses.
Exploration and Production Results
In the first quarter of 2021, E&P had net income of $308 million, compared with a net loss of $2,371 million in the first quarter of 2020.  Excluding items affecting comparability of earnings between periods, the adjusted net loss was $120 million in the first quarter of 2020.  Total net production, excluding Libya, averaged 315,000 boepd in the first quarter 2021, compared with 344,000 boepd in the first quarter of 2020 or 332,000 boepd pro forma for the sale of our interest in the Shenzi Field.  The average realized crude oil selling price, including hedging, was $50.02 per barrel in the first quarter of 2021, compared with $45.94 per barrel in the first quarter of 2020.  The average realized NGL selling price in the first quarter of 2021 was $29.49 per barrel, compared with $9.32 per barrel in the prior-year quarter, while the average realized natural gas selling price was $4.90 per thousand cubic feet (mcf) in the first quarter of 2021, compared with $3.16 per mcf in the first quarter of 2020.
The following is an update of significant E&P activities:
In North Dakota, net production from the Bakken oil shale play averaged 158,000 boepd for the first quarter of 2021 (2020 Q1: 190,000 boepd), primarily due to reduced drilling activity, lower NGL and natural gas volumes received under percentage of proceeds contracts due to higher NGL prices, and the impact of adverse winter weather. NGL and natural gas volumes received under percentage of proceeds (POP) contracts were 19,000 boepd in the first quarter of 2020, but were reduced to 11,000 boepd in the first quarter of 2021 due to higher realized NGL prices lowering volumes received as consideration for gas processing fees under the POP contracts. During the quarter, we drilled 11 wells, completed 10 wells, and brought 4 new wells online. In February, we increased the number of operated rigs from one to two. We forecast net production to average approximately 155,000 boepd for the second quarter of 2021 and in the range of 155,000 boepd to 160,000 boepd for the full year 2021 reflecting the impact of lower NGL volumes received as consideration for gas processing fees under POP contracts due to higher NGL prices, the sale of the Corporation’s nonstrategic acreage interests, and adverse winter weather.
During the first quarter of 2021, we completed the sale of 4.2 million barrels of Bakken crude oil transported and stored on two VLCCs during 2020, which contributed net income of approximately $70 million in the first quarter of 2021.
On April 30, 2021, we completed the sale of our previously announced Little Knife and Murphy Creek nonstrategic acreage interests in the Bakken for total consideration of $312 million with an effective date of March 1, 2021. The sale included approximately 78,700 net acres, which are located in the southernmost portion of the Corporation's Bakken position and are not connected to Hess Midstream LP infrastructure. Net production from the acreage during the first quarter of 2021 was approximately 4,500 boepd.
In the Gulf of Mexico, net production for the first quarter of 2021 averaged 56,000 boepd (2020 Q1: 74,000 boepd), reflecting the sale of our interest in the Shenzi Field in the fourth quarter of 2020 and natural field decline. Net production from the Shenzi Field was 12,000 boepd in the first quarter of 2020.
At the Stabroek Block (Hess 30%), offshore Guyana, net production from the Liza Phase 1 development averaged 31,000 bopd for the first quarter of 2021 (2020 Q1: 15,000 bopd). The Liza Destiny FPSO reached its nameplate capacity of 120,000 gross bopd in December 2020 and remained at this level during the first quarter of 2021. In mid-April, production from the Liza Destiny FPSO was curtailed for several days after a leak was detected in the flash gas compressor discharge silencer. Production has since ramped back up and is expected to remain in the range of 100,000 to 110,000 gross bopd until repairs to the discharge silencer are completed in approximately three months. Following this repair, production is expected to return to, or above, nameplate capacity. In addition, an order has been placed for an upgraded flash gas compression system, which is expected to be installed on the Liza Destiny in the fourth quarter of 2021.
Startup of Phase 2 of the Liza Field development, which will utilize the Liza Unity FPSO with an expected capacity of 220,000 gross bopd, remains on track for early 2022. The third development, Payara, will utilize the Prosperity FPSO with an expected capacity of 220,000 gross bopd. First oil is expected in 2024. A fourth development, Yellowtail, has been identified on the Stabroek Block. The operator, Esso Exploration and Production Guyana Limited, expects to submit a plan of development to the government of Guyana in the second half of this year. Pending government approval and project sanctioning, the Yellowtail project is expected to achieve first oil in 2025. The discovered resources to date on the Stabroek Block are expected to underpin up to ten FPSOs with the first six FPSOs expected by 2027.

Overview (continued)
In April 2021, we announced a discovery at the Uaru-2 well, which encountered approximately 120 feet of high quality oil bearing sandstone reservoir, including newly identified intervals below the original Uaru-1 discovery. The well was drilled in 5,659 feet of water and is located approximately 6.8 miles south of the Uaru-1 well.
The Stena DrillMax is currently appraising the Longtail discovery, which will include a planned sidetrack. The Noble Don Taylor will drill the Mako-2 well after Uaru-2, and the Stena Carron is currently drilling the Koebi-1 exploration well. The Noble Tom Madden, the Noble Bob Douglas and the Noble Sam Croft, which recently arrived at the Stabroek Block, are primarily focused on development drilling.
In the Gulf of Thailand, net production from Block A-18 of the JDA averaged 37,000 boepd for the first quarter of 2021 (2020 Q1: 32,000 boepd), including contribution from unitized acreage in Malaysia, while net production from North Malay Basin, offshore Peninsular Malaysia, averaged 27,000 boepd for the first quarter of 2021 (2020 Q1: 26,000 boepd). Net production was higher at the JDA and North Malay Basin due to a recovery in economic activity.
At the Waha fields (Hess 8%), onshore Libya, net production averaged approximately 18,000 boepd (2020 Q1: 5,000 boepd), with the increase from the prior-year quarter due to the lifting of force majeure by the national oil company of Libya in October 2020.
In March, we entered into an agreement to sell our interests in Denmark for total consideration of $150 million, with an effective date of January 1, 2021. Net production from Denmark during the first quarter of 2021 was 6,000 boepd (2020 Q1: 7,000 boepd). The sale is expected to close during the third quarter of 2021, subject to customary adjustments.
The following is an update of significant Midstream activities during the first quarter of 2021:
In March 2021, the Corporation received net proceeds of $70 million from the public offering of 3,450,000 Hess-owned Class A shares of Hess Midstream LP. After giving effect to this transaction, the Corporation owns an approximate 46% interest in Hess Midstream LP, on a consolidated basis.
