PEMEX reports on its activities to address critical environmental risks
Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) reports that previous administrations' lack of investment to address and mitigate critical environmental risks has led to the deterioration of some of the company's strategic facilities and increased the inventory of assets whose useful or productive life has already ended.
In this administration, however, as instructed by Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, resources were allocated in the budget to reverse risks that could eventually endanger the population, the environment and Petróleos Mexicanos' personnel.
For onshore as well as pluvial and shallow lake wells that are no longer operational, a special program was designed to plug 940 wells in oil-producing areas of the country between 2022 and 2024.
The program is giving high priority to abandoned wells that pose a greater risk due to their proximity to towns and bodies of water.
PEMEX reaffirms its commitment to the safety of its workers, its facilities, the community, and the environment.
