Remark Question With Flight Planning

hey guys!
I found this Remark in my Flight Plan
I heard of ETOPS for like ocean flying but can somebody tell me what this is pls?

“ETOPS FUEL REQUIRED”

This means that extra fuel will be required. It is an over-water operation, therefore less margin for error.

ETOPS is the distance an aircraft can fly from an airport this only applies to two engine aircraft. For example a 737 ETOPS is 120 minutes this was made in case if and engine fails it makes sure an aircraft can make it back to an airport. Now this rule is not very necessary as engines are very reliable this is also why tri-jets were very popular.
