joint Bureau-PEMEX Exploration and Production study of the Macuspana
and Veracruz Basins in Eastern Mexico was completed in December 2001.
The gas plays in the Miocene-Pliocene section of the on-land and offshore
portions of the basins were defined and assessed during this 20-month
project. The multidisciplinary, integrated study provided a regional
synthesis of the geological framework, petroleum systems, and petrophysical
and engineering characteristics of the basins. The study involved
close cooperation and participation of PEMEX management and staff.
