MEXICO CITY Oct 28 (Reuters) - Mexico's state-run oil company Pemex reported a steep third-quarter loss on Wednesday of 167 billion pesos ($9.9 billion), hurt by weak oil prices and a sharp depreciation of the Mexican peso.

Pemex said in a statement that total sales for the July to September period were 313 billion pesos, with earnings before earnings before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA) of 119 billion pesos.
