Mexican president says government not seeking to control Zama oilfield

MEXICO CITY, Oct 3 (Reuters) - Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador said on Thursday that his government is not seeking to take control of the Zama oilfield discovery, which is currently operated by a private consortium led by U.S.-based Talos Energy.

Reuters reported earlier this week that Mexico's national oil company Pemex wants to take control of Zama from Talos and give it to Pemex, which controls a neighboring block where the find likely extends. (Reporting by David Alire Garcia Editing by Dave Graham)
