Pemex to develop offshore Zama field in Mexico

MEXICO CITY, March 24, 2023 – Pemex and partners have submitted their plans to develop the Zama field in Mexico, the Mexican state-owned energy company announced on Thursday.

Pemex is partnered on the project with a group led by US energy independent Talos Energy that includes Wintershall Dea and Harbor Energy.

The unit development plans await formal approval by the National Hydrocarbons Commission and are expected to pass in less than three months.


The development includes two offshore platforms and 46 wells linked to Pemex’s onshore Dos Bocas terminal.

Neither drilling schedule nor cost of the project were disclosed.

Pemex joined the project as operator in March 2022.
