Pemex Seeks to Retain All Deepwater Fields That It’s Drilled

Petroleos Mexicanos is seeking permission to keep all deepwater fields it has drilled, under the so-called round zero.

“We want to keep those fields where, after the company’s investments, we have reduced our geological risk,” board member Fluvio Ruiz said in an interview today. The company is also asking to retain many of the fields in the Chicontepec area before the government offers other zones in tenders to the private sector, Ruiz said.
