The Energy Reform promoted by the Mexican government has received much criticism in some political sectors. It is important to clarify that this is a long-term commitment, but the reform already shows positive results for Mexico. The Italian firm ENI announced an oil discovery in one field.
The National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) has yet to approve investment plans for six projects of the Round.
Pemex tanker trucks, which distribute fuel and diesel to the more than 11 thousand gas stations in the country, could be replaced by private transportation since they offer almost twice as much transport capacity than the NOC.

Pemex will ask interested investors and operators to make formal offers in the next weeks.
