Pemex invested 745mn pesos (US$67.1mn) to develop the Lobina field, which is 31km from Tampico port in Tamaulipas state at the mouth of the Panuco river, the statement said.
The field has a tripod platform with capacity for six wells and a 12-inch oil/gas pipeline to transport hydrocarbons to platform B of the nearby Arenque field.
As a result of the start of production on the Lobina-1 well, Pemex's crude oil production in the whole Altamira area will increase 20% to 28,000b/d and gas production will rise to 53Mf3/d from 50Mf3/d.
Production in the Poza Rica-Altamira area will rise to 88,000b/d of crude and 155Mf3/d of gas, Pemex said.
