Since 1938, the Mexican State first voted in to allow private companies to invest in offshore oil industry based in Mexico waters. This is the latest major step since 80 years ago where the country allowed foreign competitors to invest in its energy markets. The Premier stated that the companies that won the bidding and have started drilling oil are Premier Oil PLC, Sierra Oil, and Gas and Talos Energy LLC.
The launch was the first offshore exploration that was launched by Petroleum Mexicanos other than star run monopoly since when the country started nationalizing the oil industry. The Zama-1 well that is found in Sureste Basic in the state of Tobasco is estimated to have crude oil ranging from 100 and 500 barrels. Drilling of oil is expected to take 90 days, and it will cost more than $16 million. The companies responsible for drilling won the bid in 2015. Major analysts like Elaine Reynolds in an interview stated that this kind of project is a significant geological opportunity for success. The three main operators Premier, Talos, and Sierra hold the stakes of 40%, 35%, and 25% respectively.
