Mexico Energy Reform Market: The Migration, the Farm-Out and the Round 1

After Mexico’s Energy Reform was signed into law in December 2013, Mexican National Oil Company (NOC) Pemex formally requested to the Mexican State, which of its E&P assets the company would like to keep under its operation. This request was called Round Zero, where the areas not requested or awarded to Pemex would be relinquished to State control. The outcome of Round Zero indicated which assets were to be awarded to Pemex and migrated into a new type of contract as well as which assets were to be farmed-out by the NOC. In addition to Round Zero’s announcement, the Mexican Government also confirmed the schedule for its first bidding round were areas no longer under Pemex ownership will be offered directly by the State.
