Mexican state oil monopoly Petroleos Mexicanos's crude exports averaged 1.37 million barrels per day in November, a 13-month high, the company said Friday.
Pemex said in a statement that between Jan. 1 and Nov. 30 it exported an average of 1.26 million bpd and earned $43.33 billion in export revenue.
On Tuesday, Pemex said it produced an average of 2.57 million barrels per day in November, its highest level of output since May 2011.
Pemex expects to finish 2012 with average production of 2.55 million bpd and to hit 2.6 million bpd in December, Pemex Exploration and Production director Carlos Morales said in late October.
The company said in Friday's statement that it sends 80 percent of its crude exports to customers in the Americas, 14 percent to Europe and the rest to buyers in the Far East.
Pemex, the world's No. 4 oil producer, is the biggest contributor to Mexico's federal budget and one of the few oil firms worldwide that handles all aspects of the productive chain, from exploration to distribution and the marketing of end products. EFE
