Pemex Submits Burgos Basin Exploration Request
Mexican state oil company Pemex's E&P unit Pemex Exploracion y Produccion (PEP) has submitted a hydrocarbons exploration request to energy ministry Sener for the Burgos exploratory reserves incorporation investment project.
PEP will carry out the Sur de Mareografo 3D surface seismic exploration study over a 1,000km2 area in Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon states, Mexico's official gazette reported.
The high-resolution seismic data will help PEP define underground structural and stratigraphic characteristics to confirm possible hydrocarbons-bearing traps, the report said.
Landowners in the area where Pemex plans to explore have 30 days to submit objections.
