Mexico upstream fiscal summary

Report summary

In 2015, Mexico redirected licensing from Integrated Service Contracts (CIEPs) in favour of Petroleum Sharing Agreements and Concession-style Licenses to attract international investment.  These contracts are awarded in highly transparent licence rounds. Shelf blocks are regulated under Petroleum Sharing Agreements in a very progressive fiscal system, consisting of price-driven royalties, a biddable profit share based varying with IRR, and income tax. Onshore and deepwater blocks are regulated under a concession-style License system, with royalties based on production, price, R-Factor and/or bid level in addition to the income tax.
