PEMEX seeks partner to develop shallow water fields in the GoM

The opening of proposals will take place on June 19, 2017

The National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) recently launched a farm-out process for one contractual shal­low water area in the Gulf of Mexico, which encompasses the Ayin-Batsil fields. The area is comprised by two existing  development wells and 10 exploratory wells, with an estimated surface of 1,096 km² and projected 3P reserves of 300MMboe.

 The opening of proposals will take place on June 19 2017, in which CNH will formally appoint a partner for PEMEX in order to develop the Ayin-Batsil fields. As explained by local pundits, the energy reform has granted the State Productive Enterprise legal association mechanisms, which will allow PEMEX to share technological and financial risks with other companies.

This process will be held in parallel to Round 2.1, in which 15 Production Sharing Agreements for shallow wa­ter blocks will be auctioned.
