Mexico’s state-owned oil company will retain rights to exploit 83 percent of the country’s proven and probable reserves, but could form alliances with private firms in some of those fields.
Petroleos Mexicanos will only get dibs on 21 percent of the country’s possible reserves, less than it asked for.
