Mexico's Pemex swings to $4.4 bln loss in third quarter

MEXICO CITY, Oct 28 (Reuters) - Mexico's Petroleos Mexicanos said on Monday it swung to a net loss of 87.4 bln pesos ($4.43 billion) during the third quarter, dragged down by a sizeable drop in revenues at the heavily indebted state oil company.

Revenues at Pemex, as the company is known, declined by 20.2% to 350.5 billion pesos from the same quarter last year, the company said in a filing with the Mexican stock exchange.
