Regional Showcase: Doing Business in Mexico
09 Aug 2017, EIC Houston Office
Open to: EIC members only
Mexico's energy reform has been the hot topic of discussion and continues to effect all aspects of the energy market in the region. As the reform progresses, the market is continually changing. This Regional Showcase will offer current and future supply chain and project opportunities with Operators and Contractors, and provide guidance on how to do business across the energy space in Mexico.
In December 2013, Mexico introduced a constitutional reform that allowed companies other than state-owned oil firm Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) to own Mexican production blocks for the first time since the nationalization of the country's oil sector in 1938. Since then, Mexico has been organizing and taking forward its Rounds One and Two bidding processes to award oil production and exploration blocks to private companies. This has allowed for significant awards and further investment by international firms to Mexico. These investment flows will create opportunities for the supply chain.
While the great majority of the oil and gas industry is in the hands of PEMEX, there are opportunities for UK companies, particularly with the new contract schemes and also for equipment and service suppliers in specific projects. British firms already participate in Mexico's oil and gas industry, both in the new contracts schemes and as service suppliers.
