In brief: Mexico’s Pemex to operate private oil find

* Mexico’s energy ministry (Sener) has announced that the state-owned oil company, Pemex, will operate the 'Zama' oil field located off the coast of Tabasco state in the Gulf of Mexico. The oil field, discovered by US oil and gas firm Talos Energy Offshore in 2017, will be Pemex’s first joint production operation with the private sector. In a press release Talos Energy expressed its disappointment with Sener’s decision to award operatorship to Pemex after “six years of significant investments in Zama and the Mexican economy, as well as the delivery of a Zama development plan that is credible and in line with the objectives of Mexico”.
