New Production in Mexican Fields (Update as of May 2022)
30 June 2022


In the oil industry, a Field consists of one or several reservoirs, grouped or related according to geostructural aspects and stratigraphic conditions that are studied and developed with the aim of achieving hydrocarbons production1. Between 2019 and May 2022, 32 fields were counted in Mexico with new production of liquids; which can be classified into the following 3 categories: Priority Fields, New PEMEX´s Fields, and Fields in Contracts.​


The Priority Fields2 of Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) are a set of fields developed with the purpose of contributing to the national production of hydrocarbons; to the date, the National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) has approved a total of 17 Development Plans, and their modifications, related to these projects. Moreover, from 2019 to May 2022, PEMEX has incorporated 10 New Fields3 to the national production of hydrocarbons. Meanwhile, 5 Fields in Contracts4 started production: Amoca and Mizton fields (CNH-R01-L02-A1/2015 Operated by Eni Mexico), Hokchi field (CNH-R01-L02-A2/2015 Operated by Hokchi Energy), and Pokoch and Ichalkil fields (CNH-R01-L02-A4/2015 Operated by Fieldwood Energy E&P México).​


To May 2022, the production of liquids in these projects amounts to 431 thousand barrels per day (kbpd), 222 kbpd and 103 kbpd more that of May 2021 (209 Kbpd) and that of December 2021 (329 kbpd), correspondingly. Among the Priority Fields with the highest production of liquids stand out Ixachi, Mulach, and Cheek with 33, 28, and 20 kbpd, respectively. While for the New Fields stand out Quesqui, Pokche, and Itta with 134, 24, and 22 kbpd, respectively. As for the Contracts, the Hokchi, Miztón, Pokoch, Ichalkil, and Amoca fields report production of liquids of 22, 14, 13, 10, and 5 kbpd, respectively.
