President Lázaro Cárdenas expropriated foreign oil companies in the late 1930s. Since then, Pemex, the national company produces oil in Mexico. Main fields are Chicontepec Field, Cantarell Field and Ku-Maloob-Zaap. In 2008, oil production had declined by 9.2% to 3.96 million barrels per day while natural gas production increased by 14.2% to 6.92 million standard cubic feet per day.
Mexico was the world's 12th largest producer in 2019.
Mexico had the sixth greatest geothermal energy production in 2019. Mexico is home to the largest geothermal power stations in the world, the Cerro Prieto Geothermal Power Station.
