Mexico Energy Reforms Spur Pemex Deals and Outside Investment
Friday, May 11, 2018
Falling production, rising debt and reduced reserve life were among the chief issues facing Pemex, Mexico’s national oil company. Historic reforms were introduced by Mexico’s government in 2013 to try and spark a significant reversal in performance of both Pemex and the country’s hydrocarbon production as a whole.
