OIL AND GAS

The President of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, announced on Monday that the state-owned oil company Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) finalized the purchase of the Deer Park refinery, which is located in Houston, Texas. The Deer Park refinery was a joint property between the multinational oil company Shell and Pemex: each company owned 50% of the...

The American Petroleum Institute urged the Secretaries of State, Energy, Economy and the U.S. Trade Representative to demand that the Mexican government comply with the commitments acquired in international treaties.

In 2018 there were 12,581 clandestine intakes, in 2019 there were 13,136 and in 2020 they rose to more than 23,000 clandestine intakes.

Its reserves transformed the country's history and proposed new routes for Pemex to position it among the main oil-producing and exporting companies.

The sea was a promise and Pemex was so clear about it that, since the second decade of its existence, it broke the barrier of land to develop the first marine seismological study in 1949, carried out in the northern portion of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec, on the continental platform of the Gulf of Mexico, with successful results that led...
