2013 Forecast: Latin America aims for increased production ///
According to Barclays Global E&P report, Latin American companies are expected to lead the way in 2013.

Spending gains are expected to be led by significant pickups in activity in Mexico (Pemex up 21%), Venezuala (PDVSA up 46%), and Brazil (Petrobras up by 8%).
