Beyond US border, Mexico primes shale potential

Pemex is in the characterization phase, and the company plans to drill close to 200 evaluation wells within the next 4 years. "Drilling activity has centered on identifying the most promising provinces," Rangel-German said. Once these tests have fully characterized the various plays and uncertainty has been reduced, Pemex plans to drill 600 more wells. "These numbers will change as we approach 2014/2016," Rangel-German said. Ultimately, the company estimates 30,000 wells will be required to fully develop Mexico's shales.

Meanwhile, across the border from South Texas, Mexico is gearing up to initiate its own shale boom.

The country contains 61 tcf of natural gas reserves but the EIA report places Mexico's shale gas potential at 680 tcf. Mexico state oil company Pemex has been analyzing the numbers cited by the EIA along with the CNH. "In terms of resources, being ranked fourth in the world was a nice surprise, but we believe the EIA's numbers are overestimated," Rangel-German said...
