Pemex Launches Offshore Survey Work Tender

The E&P unit of Mexican state oil company Pemex has launched an international tender to carry out 3-D seismic survey work in the Temoa area of the Gulf of Mexico.

The work will cover 7,050 sq km of the country's exclusive economic zone as part of the Golfo de Mexico B exploration project, according to the bidding rules.

Golfo de Mexico B could contain close to 10Bb of crude oil equivalent, according to Pemex.

The new seismic information will complement existing 2-D data, help generate geological models and support studies to increase exploratory drilling sites.

Work is due to begin in May and will take 224 days to complete, according to the bidding rules. Potential bidders may purchase bidding rules until March 7, with offers due March 13.
