MEXICO CITY, July 8 (Reuters) - The head of Mexico's National Hydrocarbons Commission said on Wednesday that oil production should average around 2.26 million barrels per day for rest of this year and next.

Production has sagged at state oil giant Pemex and the country is hoping that private sector investment, through a historic opening of the sector, will help shore up output.
