We are learning from Hydrocarbons Mexico that when one company, especially the NOC, dominates completely the industry, the news is all about them. In the light of Rubiales reversion to ECP last Friday, this week’s rant will be about increasing NOC-dominance and what it means for the industry.
Being one of the five persons who advise Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) is a great benefit for their pockets. According to El Universal, during the past fifteen months, Pemex’s disbursed around MXN$ 14.4 million (Approx. US$ 791.1 thousand) to the Independent Directors for their services.
Pemex has delayed the project in the Lakach gas field for various difficulties over the last years but according to a report in Imagen del Golfo, Mayor of Alvarado, Octavio Ruiz Barroso said that the company could restart this important plan in coming months.
