Following this disappointing result of the first phase of round 1, the Mexican government is re-evaluating the terms to be offered for deepwater areas. CNH, the regulator, has already indicated that a number of conditions established in the shallow-water phase will be relaxed. However, the fiscal terms, set by the Ministry of Finance will be the key element in determining the regime’s attractiveness. With deepwater prospects considered the jewel in the crown of Mexico’s hydrocarbon reform, the government needs to attract significant bidding in order to salvage a round hampered by delays and low oil prices.
