Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) is the national oil company of Mexico, and seventh largest oil producer and tenth largest gas producer in the world. PEMEX accounts for one-third of the Mexican government's revenues and 7% of its export earnings. But due to rampant corruption, lack of investment and political exploitation, PEMEX started losing its financial stability since 2000, despite the record-high energy prices and increasing world appetite for oil. To revive its fortunes, in mid-2003, PEMEX implemented several restructuring strategies. But the company's future is still uncertain due to its falling output, increasing debt and costs.

Pedagogical Objectives:

  • To provide insights into the troubles faced by PEMEX and the restructuring strategies undertaken to overcome them
  • To discuss the efficacy of PEMEX’s restructuring strategies and its future.
