Mexico announces biggest onshore oil find in 15 years

Monday, November 6, 2017

Pemex, the Mexican state oil company, announced its biggest onshore discovery in 15 years, just three months after Mexico reported the first major find by private companies, bolstering the nation’s efforts to revive its oil industry.

The Ixachi-1 well that lies 72 kilometers south of the port of Veracruz is believed to contain 1.5 billion barrels of oil in place, or about 350 million in proven, probable and possible reserves.
