Mexican-operated oil rig

The Centenario exploration oil rig in the Gulf of Mexico is operated by the Mexican company Grupo R for the state-owned oil company Pemex. Mexican President President Enrique Pena Nieto on Dec. 20 signed a controversial law opening the country's oil industry to foreign investment for the first time since it was nationalized in 1938. The change would break Pemex's 75-year-old oil monopoly.
