Mexico – In a deep-water bid round for the Mexican Gulf of Mexico, Shell won four exploration blocks on its own, one with its partner Pemex Exploración y Producción and four with its partner Qatar Petroleum International. Shell will be the operator of all nine blocks.

Shell has been in Mexico since 1954 and has a large portfolio of businesses that includes retail, trading, petrochemicals, lubricants, import and sales of LNG. The results of today’s deep-water bid round further fortify Shell’s presence in this key market after having established its first retail station in the country last September.
