Audio – Pemex paints grim picture of Mexico’s oil future

April 3, 2008

Pemex Exploration and Production Chief Carlos Morales told the Reuters Latin America Investment Summit that the company’s first six deepwater exploration wells found no oil and how production at more of the country’s Gulf fields will follow Cantarell into decline in the years ahead. He also said that a planned oil sector reform would be crippled if it excludes alliances with experienced foreign partners.
