Pemex seeking partners to explore offshore Trion field

Mexico’s Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) is seeking partners to explore and develop offshore Trion field in the Perdido belt, a Pemex executive said at a news conference in Mexico City June 10.

Pemex Chief Executive Jose Antonio Gonzalez Anaya said Pemex estimates Trion to hold 480 million boe in total proved, potential, and possible oil and gas reserves. The field lies in more than 2,500 m of water about 200 km offshore Mexico. No contract details were immediately available such as what percentage share Pemex expects.

The National Hydrocarbons Commission is expected to select partners for Pemex as part of a tender process. Results are expected to be announced in December at the same time as the government holds an auction for 10 deepwater blocks. Trion is adjacent to several blocks being offered in the deepwater round.
