Mexico's Round One deepwater exploration: risks and potential rewards
The deepwater phase of Round One will close on 5 December 2016 with 10 exploration blocks on offer. Twenty-six companies, including every major deepwater player, have prequalified, a clear sign of interest given the current buyer's market for exploration acreage. We assessed the subsurface potential and risks of the two areas where the blocks are clustered: the Perdido region of the Sabinas-Rio Grande basin and the Salina del Istmo region of the Salinas-Sureste basin.
