Mexican oil regulator approves new seismic studies for Gulf resources
MEXICO CITY May 14 (Reuters) - Mexico's oil regulator voted on Thursday to approve permits for a pair of companies to conduct two-dimensional seismic studies of oil and gas resources in the country's territorial waters in the Gulf of Mexico.
The companies, Norway's MultiClient Geophysical and U.S.-based ION Geophysical Corp, are tasked with helping identify potential resources in the largely unexplored waters of the Gulf. (Reporting by David Alire Garcia)
