New Production in Mexican Fields
10 February 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 production. Between 2019 and 2021, 28 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 Fields 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 2021, PEMEX has incorporated 9 New Fields to the national production of hydrocarbons. Meanwhile, 4 Fields in Contracts started production: Mizton field (CNH-R01-L02-A1/2015 operated by Eni Mexico), Hokchi field (CNH-R01-L02-A2/2015 by Hokchi Energy) and Pokoch and Ichalkil fields (CNH-R01-L02-A4/2015 by Fieldwood Energy E&P México).

 

To December 2021, the production of liquids in these projects amounts to 319 thousand barrels per day (kbpd), almost doubling that of December 2020 (164 kbpd). Among the Priority Fields with the highest production of liquids stand out Ixachi, Mulach and Octli with 31, 26 and 21 kbpd, respectively. While for the New Fields stand out Quesqui, Itta and Tlamatini with 77, 16 and 14 kbpd, respectively. As for the Contracts, the Hokchi, Miztón, Pokoch and Ichalkil fields report production of liquids of 18, 13, 4 and 2 kbpd, respectively.
