Hydrocarbons Production Prospective
03 August 2021

 

The Hydrocarbons Production Prospective is a forecast created by the National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) based on the expected production of hydrocarbons in Entitlement and Contract areas1 in Mexico.

 

The forecast is developed using information reported by operators to the CNH, as well as from observed trends in the industry and in national exploration potential. During the report’s creation, possible scenarios are outlined using premises and assumptions for the exploration and production activities of oil & gas projects, as described in the report.

 

This update of the Prospective estimates an increase of ~150 kbpd in the high scenario, mainly due to predicted production from Contract areas tendered in Round 1.2, the Ek-Balam project and new Pemex Exploration Entitlements2.

 

For further information, please consult the quarterly update of the report on the website hidrocarburos.gob.mx, under the section Statistics / Production / Reports / Production Prospective.

Notes:  

1. The estimate considers the participating interest stipulated for Pemex and private companies in 23 Contract areas (5 Migrations, 3 Farmouts and 15 Contracts tendered in CNH bidding rounds).

2.  Information from the Oil and Natural Gas Production Prospective, through the second quarter of 2021.
