Oil deal of the year: Mexico set for $6 billion windfall

Tuesday, November 24, 2015

Mexico is set to get a record payout of at least $6 billion from its oil hedges this year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

The Latin American country locks in oil sales as a shield against price declines through a series of financial deals with banks including Goldman Sachs Group Inc., JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Citigroup Inc. For 2015, Mexico guaranteed sales at almost $30 a barrel higher than average prices over the past year.
