Petroleos Mexicanos, the state oil company, plans to offer service contracts to operate field labs to explore for shale-gas in northern Mexico, said Carlos Morales, head of exploration and production.

The service contracts would be similar to those offered for Mexico’s Chicontepec field and companies have expressed interest, Morales said during an event in Mexico City today.
