MEXICO CITY, Oct 28 (Reuters) - The financial support the Mexican government has provided to national oil company Pemex is enough for the firm to keep operating, finance ministry chief economist Luis Madrazo said on Friday.

Earlier on Friday, Pemex posted its 16th consecutive quarterly loss, as both oil prices and production slid.
