Pemex was rumored to be planning to take control of the Zama field from Talos Energy, which made a significant discovery on the edge of its block, adjacent to an area belonging to the NOC. This created a controversy in the country and Talos announced an important decision on the mater.
Pemex had to import light oil to send to the National Refining System (SNR) last year. Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador (AMLO), President of Mexico, opposed this alternative, and he argued that this was not going to happen again. However, it looks like the NOC has imported light crude yet again.
