Pemex’s net loss was 79,130 million pesos (US$4.4 billion), from 25.4 billion pesos in the previous period, the company reported on Friday. Crude and condensate production fell to 1.85 million barrels per day from 1.88 million in the last quarter.

The results indicate that government aid for the state oil producer has not reversed the company’s financial decline. The administration of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has been lavishing support on Pemex, granting the world’s most indebted oil company tax cuts and capital injections to no avail.
