Tuesday, August 23, 2011

  • Pemex has successfully brought Kinbe-1 well in the southern Gulf of Mexico to production
  • The company established an initial flow rate of 5,600 barrels of light crude per day and 9 million cubic feet of gas per day on average

State-run Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex has successfully brought Kinbe-1 well in the southern Gulf of Mexico to production after an year long drilling. The initial flow rate of the well is 5,600 barrels of light crude per day and its gas production is estimated at 9 million cubic feet per day on average, the company revealed.

Pemex said, "this new discovery increases the petroleum potential of the zone comprised by the fields Tsimin, Xux and Kab."

According to a Wall Street Journal report, the current production results of Kinbe-1 well comes as a welcome relief for the company that has been struggling with the slide in yield following Cantarell offshore fields decline in production that has significantly brought down the output levels to less than 2.6 million barrels a day from 3.4 million barrels a day in 2004.
