Pemex Undersigns Contracts for Hydrocarbon Exploration and Extraction in Deep Waters of the Gulf of Mexico
Petróleos Mexicanos undersigned four contracts for hydrocarbon exploration and extraction: one with Shell, another with the companies Chevron and Inpex, and two individual contracts. These are all to work in deep-water blocks in the Gulf of Mexico, which were part of the bidding process hosted by the National Hydrocarbons Commission in Round 2.4.

Thus, Pemex consolidates its position as a reliable, attractive and competitive partner, who has learned to adapt to the new conditions of the international oil production environment. Joint ventures of this kind strengthen the company’s potential to profitably, sustainably, and safely maintain its production platform.

The contracts were signed by the CEO of Pemex Exploración y Producción, Juan Javier Hinojosa Puebla; the CEO of Shell Mexico, Alberto de la Fuente; the CEO of Chevron Mexico, Evelyn Vilchez, and for Inpex Mexico, CEO Ryo Manabe.

Petróleos Mexicanos is currently taking advantage of the flexibility and tools granted to the company by the Energy Reform to establish new joint ventures. The four new contracts will allow the companies to jointly explore the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico where the State-owned Productive Company has proven to rely on high technical and operating capabilities, while sharing the technological and financial risks.

Likewise, Pemex is using this opportunity to make further progress on complementing its exploration portfolio and thus meet its medium and long-term reserve integration goals, as established in its Business Plan for 2017-2021.

Pemex is the operator on blocks 5 and 18, with 100 per cent participation. These areas are located in the geological regions of Cinturón Plegado Perdido and Cordilleras Mexicanas, and they cover a surface of 2,733 and 2,917 km2, respectively. The adjudication of these blocks strengthens Pemex’s exploration portfolio, as it will allow the company to continue exploring the Gulf of Mexico.

For block 2, Petróleos Mexicanos is currently partnered with Shell, with 50 per cent participation, and the Anglo-Dutch company will be the operator of this consortium. This block is located in the geological region of Perdido in the Gulf of Mexico and spans a surface of 2,146 km2. This joint venture with Shell will allow Pemex to establish a solid business relationship with one of the most experienced companies among the leaders of the international oil industry.

In Block 22, Pemex’s participation is 27.5 per cent, as it is entering this venture together with the American Chevron and the Japanese Inpex. This block is located in the geological region of Cuenca Salina and spans 2,879 km2. Preliminary studies have been performed on this block and suggest that the hydrocarbons expected to be found in this area will be mostly heavy crude oil.
