    Mexico's future closely linked to oil development no matter who's the next president

    Energy Minister Joaquin Coldwell said that two further auctions planned before the handover would go ahead, as would tenders for seven joint ventures

    Mexican oil output could return to 2 million barrels per day by about 2022 if the next government pursues plans to auction off development blocs to private investors, Energy Minister Pedro Joaquin Coldwell announced. Mexico will elect a new president on July 1 but the front-runner in opinion polls, leftist Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, has threatened to delay opening up the energy sector to private investment.
