Contingent Resources
Contingent Resources are those quantities of petroleum estimated, as of a given date, to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations by application of development projects but which are not currently considered to be commercially recoverable owing to one or more contingencies.

 

Compared to Prospective Resources, Contingent Resources are already discovered, whose recoverable fractions are not commercial due to one or more contingencies; in other words, for some reason those discovered and recoverable volumes are not economically profitable or technically viable for development. On the other hand, Reserves are discovered resources that are anticipated to be commercially recoverable by the application of development projects. Regarding the oil equivalent Reserves amount, 3C Contingent Resources represent 39% of 3P Reserves as of January 1st, 2022.

 

Under the applicable Regulation on Prospective and Contingent Resources issued by the National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH), Oil Companies annually report their estimates of Contingent Resources of fields or discoveries within the areas where they are Operators5/. Based on the information reported by the Oil Companies and reviewed by CNH, according to the assessment and state of fields and discoveries as of 2021, for the first time, the Contingent Resources of the country are consolidated for the purpose of providing a complete vision of the Petroleum Potential of Mexico.

 

PRMS Contingent Resources Classification
For the exercise of CNH duties regarding the classification of Contingent Resources estimates, the Petroleum Resources Management System (PRMS) is adopted, in its current English version, as the reference system.

This classification system defines subclasses for Contingent Resources, which are related to the maturity level of the projects and the business decisions to be implemented, positioning the project's status in the value chain.

Development pending: A discovered accumulation where project activities are ongoing to justify commercial development in the foreseeable future.

Development on hold: A discovered accumulation where project activities are on hold and where justification as a commercial development may be subject to significant delay.

Development unclarified: A discovered accumulation where project activities are under evaluation and where justification as a commercial development is unknown based on available information.
