Mexico to tender licenses for 10 deepwater Gulf of Mexico areas

Mexico plans to tender licenses in 2016 for the exploration and drilling of 10 deepwater areas in the Gulf of Mexico, according to Reuters, citing Mexico’s energy regulator, the Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH). No date has yet been set for the auction.

Reuters noted that four of the areas in the offshore Perdido Fold Belt are expected to contain light crude.

On Tuesday, CNH awarded 25 onshore contracts, mainly to small Mexican oil companies.
