The Ku-Maloob-Zaap (KMZ), in the Campeche Sound, held for the third consecutive year, its production platform of 850 thousand barrels per day, a volume that it established itself as the leading supplier of crude oil to our country.

With a total of 170 oil producing wells in operation in December this field reached peak production of 865,000 barrels per day and 349 million cubic feet of gas.

In 2012, KMZ contributed a third of national output, so that PEMEX has a strategic importance. Under its operation is based on a rigorous reservoir management plan, has become a role model to capitalize experiences of other international fields.

The support of this enormous project is supported by the best reservoir management practices, using models and numerical simulation of flow behavior in wells and facilities.

Were made parallel major works for the management and utilization of gas, installing compression equipment, pipelines and interconnections for operational flexibility.

These actions have increased the rate of uptake of the active gas rising from 87 percent in 2007 to just over 98 percent late last year.

Furthermore, Pemex Exploration and Production has established an implementation plan for the project in the period 2013-2017, which will maintain the production platform of 850 thousand barrels per day of crude.

The vision of this project is the development and exploitation of deposits in a rational, maximizing the recoverability of its fields and economic value.

This production complex consists of five heavy oil producing fields: Ku, Maloob Zaap Bacab and Lum, which are located in the territorial waters of the Gulf of Mexico, a distance of 105 miles, northwest of Ciudad del Carmen, in a water depth between 60 and 90 meters.
