MEXICO CITY, Nov 6 (Reuters) - A tender to select an oil and gas marketer for the government's share of output under new exploration and production contracts received no bids by a Monday deadline, Mexico's oil regulator said in a statement.
Due to the lack of bids, the auction was declared void, the National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) said. It did not provide further details.
It will now be up to the CNH to decide whether to organize a new tender for the potentially-lucrative marketing rights.
Prior to a 2013 constitutional reform that ended the decades-long energy monopoly enjoyed by state-run oil company Pemex, all of Mexico's crude exports were marketed by the company's commercial arm, P.M.I. Comercio Internacional. (Reporting by Adriana Barrera, editing by G Crosse)
