FACTBOX-Pemex's deep water Gulf of Mexico exploration record

 March 12 (Reuters) - Mexican state oil monopoly Pemex
[PEMX.UL] has pinned its long-term hopes on the deep waters of
the Gulf of Mexico, where the government estimates as much as
29.5 billion barrels of oil equivalent could lie.
 But so far the drilling campaign has had few successes.
 The following table lists exploratory wells drilled by
Pemex in deep waters, classified as anything more than 500
meters (1,640 feet):
