Project of the Transversal modification to the Regulations
18 August 2023

The Comisión Nacional de Hidrocarburos (CNH) has as two of its strategic objectives to ensure the continuous improvement of the regulation on exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons, as well as to ensure efficient and quality service to regulated entities.


Based on these objectives, the CNH is developing a transversal modification project in the Regulations based on the following strategic points:

  • Plan evaluation criteria
  • Operations flexibility
  • Elimination of duplicities
  • Supervision efficiency


The main effects and benefits of the transversal changes in the Regulations will be reflected in:

  • Plan Guidelines- $1,500 millions
  • Well Guidelines - $ 1,060 millions
  • Gas use Guidelines - $110 millions
  • Measurement Guidelines - $610 millions
  • Enhanced Recovery Guidelines - $130 millions
  • Reserves Guidelines


Generating total savings with compliance with the regulation of $3,400 million.


To give way to this change in the Regulations, the Regulatory Impact Analysis and Start of the Regulatory Improvement process is sent to the Comisión Nacional de Mejora Regulatoria, later the comments that are issued during the Public Consultation process are received and attended to, and once the final Opinion of the Comisión Nacional de Mejora Regulatoria is obtained, the Agreement will be submitted to the Governing Body so that, once approved by it, it is sent to the Official Journal of the Federation for publication.
