The Hokchi field is a shallow-water field awarded in Round One. The field forms a single development block also known as Area 2 in the Southwest Marine region off the coast of Tabasco. The field is formerly part of the Litoral de Tabasco business unit. Hokchi lies within the Comalcalco sub-basin. The sub-basin, located in the northwestern part of the Salinas basin, is bounded by the GOM continental shelf to the northeast, the Comalcalco fault to the south and the Salina del Istmo basin to the west. The productive reservoirs occur in three play types: Middle to Late Miocene turbidite sands, Late Miocene-Pliocene deltaic sands and Plio-Pleistocene fluvial sands. Anticlinal traps are the dominant form of trapping mechanism in all three play types, produced by normal faulting in an extensional tectonic regime.
