    Mexico’s ambitious program to attract foreign investment into the oil and gas sector has been underway for some time. Round One had 39 blocks awarded out of 55 total blocks offered. Round Two resulted in 50 of 68 blocks being awarded, including 19 deepwater blocks in Round 2.4. Round 3 got off to a good start with 16 of 35 onshore blocks being awarded.

    The Pemex Associations or “Farmouts” have also attracted attention with three contracts being signed between Pemex and International E&P companies looking to jointly invest and develop the fields.

    While other licensing rounds and farmout rounds have been postponed or delayed, the fact remains that a new ecosystem of operators, regulators, service companies, and private equity has sprung up and taken root in Mexico.
