Course Description:In 2013, the Mexican government passed a law deregulating the energy industry. The process officially started at the beginning of this year and will ultimately allow for opportunities in private investment in areas including, refining, transportation, exploration, extraction and storage and distribution.
This webinar provides an expansive look into the new projects and investment opportunities that have emerged in the wake of the energy reformation, focusing on opportunities in upstream, midstream and downstream activities in the industry as well as the rounds that have been called by the government for awarding contracts in exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons in onshore and offshore blocks.
What You Will Learn:
- New investment opportunities in México in the oil and gas industry since 2013 (opening of the oil and gas industry in México).
- National and multinational companies have been awarded exploration and extraction contracts in shallow, deep and ultra-deep waters of the Mexican Gulf and onshore blocks.
- Open seasons to award storage and transportation capacity for fuels and diesel have also been called by the State-Owned Productive Company, PEMEX and more are expected to be called during 2017.
