MEXICO’S FIRST NINE LICENSING ROUNDS AND WHAT SHOULD COME NEXT?
  1. Speaker
    Juan Carlos Zepeda
    President Commissioner of CNH

The Mexican licensing rounds have attracted worldwide attention. Being one of the last major oil and gas countries to open up its industry, as well as one of the most attractive due to the amount and quality of the resources that remain untapped, the interest of big international companies in participating in the licensing rounds is understandable. As of January 2018, eight licensing rounds have taken place, with 88 blocks assigned to over 70 companies from around the world.

As the Energy Reform picks up pace it continues to display growing pains. The migration process of PEMEX assignations has lagged, companies often face delays in permitting or are expected to deal with multiple regulatory bureaucracies simultaneously. What could an incoming administration do to maximize the efficiency of the sector and reap the benefits of an increasingly successful constitutional reform?

The Ambitions of Mexico’s Key Oil and Gas States

Oil revenue from the states on Mexico’s Gulf coast has been one of the greatest contributors to national development. Now they are positioned to take part in the post-Energy Reform take-off of the upstream sector. During the industry downturn these states were also the hardest hit. As the sector picks up again these four key oil and gas states will start managing a certain percentage of the revenues that companies generate in their territories.

ACHIEVEMENTS OF THE ENERGY REFORM AND HOW TO CONSOLIDATE THEM
  1. Speaker
    Rosanety Barrios
    Head of the Industrial Transformation Policy Unit at the Deputy Ministry of Hydrocarbons

The Energy Reform is perhaps the most important legislation Mexico has passed in the new millennium, opening up the sector to private players and foreign investment. The CNH licensing rounds have been increasingly successful, heralding major finds such as Xama-1 and spurring exploration and investment. From upstream to retail, foreign and Mexican companies are rapidly transforming the face of the oil and gas market.

    Senior Vice President, Business Development of ATCO

Mexico’s pipeline and storage systems changed radically after the Energy Reform as CENAGAS took control of the pipeline system from PEMEX, opening the field to private distributors. Interconnection with the US is increasing as new pipelines are constructed. Mexico’s requirements for new infrastructure are sizeable and play an important role in regional development.

  5. Panelist
    Erik Finnstrom
    Senior Vice President at TGS

Mexico is a country with a long history in the hydrocarbon sector. The country’s first well was drilled in 1904 and since then PEMEX has developed broad expertise in drilling onshore and in shallow waters. Deepwater, however, is a completely new playing field for the NOC, as well as for IOCs entering the Mexican market, as they have experience in other parts of the world but not in the Mexican territory.

  5. Panelist
    Glyn Jones
    General Manager of Petrofac

Exploration and Production in onshore basins are two of the strongest expertise areas that operators and service providers have developed across the value chain. Nevertheless, as all those companies used to have just one client – PEMEX – most local businesses lacked the standards and practices required by the international companies entering the Mexican market.

The Consolidation of ASEA
  1. Speaker
    Jimena Marván
    Chief of Planning, Strategic Partnerships and Processes at ASEA

A major uptake in hydrocarbon activities requires a strong institution capable of regulating the players in the industry. ASEA was created in 2014 to tackle this objective. Four years have passed, and as the involved players start ramping up their activities, the time has come for the institution to show it has consolidated itself as a regulator capable of handling the task at hand.

    Merlin Cochran
    Deputy Director General of Exploration and Extraction of Hydrocarbons at the Ministry of Energy

Shallow-water wells in Mexico are one of the major proofs of the country’s productivity-centered objectives. Due to the techniques used, many of those wells have become economically unviable, although the areas may still have valuable resources. The task now is for companies to turn those fields into valuable assets able to produce economically attractive oil and gas, as well as to take advantage of the opportunities existing in the many unexplored fields in the Gulf of Mexico.
