The exploratory well Puskon-1, Petróleos Mexicanos drilled into the sea 61 kilometers east of the city of Tuxpan, Veracruz, proved the existence of an active petroleum system in this area, recording a series of demonstrations of hydrocarbons.

The well was drilled in a water depth of 647 meters, in order to evaluate the potential for a possible formation of the Mesozoic, which is estimated consists of carbonate rocks and, according to studies extending over an area of about 20 thousand square kilometers.

The Puskon-1 was programmed to reach a total depth of 8.125 meters, but from the 7.200 meters confirmed the presence of wet gas and 7.632 meters recorded temperatures and pressures higher than predicted.

We are currently working on characterizing structural-stratigraphic and petrophysical of this training, in order to define its distribution and potential.

It also updates the geological-geophysical interpretations, in order to propose a new location future exploration to assess the potential of this oil objective and well considered design suited to the characteristics identified in this area.

It is worth mentioning that based on the rock samples and geophysical log analysis, it was possible to identify a thickness of 792 meters of rocks of Paleocene age, attractive porosities and two intervals of economic interest between 7.100 and oil 7.445 meters deep.
