ACAPULCO, Mexico, March 20 (Reuters) - Mexican deputy finance minister Fernando Aportela said on Friday that lower oil production in Latin America's no. 2 economy could pose a risk to government revenues.

Aportela said last week that the oil production goal for state energy giant Pemex had been cut by 5 percent from 2.4 million barrels per day. Mexico relies on Pemex revenues to fund about one third of the federal budget.
