Legal Framework

New Legal Framework

  • The new legal framework of Pemex endows the Company with the results-oriented management tools proper to the global petroleum industry. These tools add value in relation to exploration and production projects.
  • The Company now has its own legal mandate for procurement in relation to mission-critical activities characteristic of those of Pemex E&P: the exploration, development and production of oil deposits.
  • By virtue of Article 51 of the PEMEX Law, Pemex no longer is limited by the restrictions of the Public Works Law for such activities.
  • Now the Company may contract with national and international companies who are providers of goods and services in the oil industry under contractual models that are more attractive and balanced, both for Pemex as well as for the companies.
