UPCOMING AGENDA

Mexico’s Energy Future
March 17th, 2016
at the HQ of the
Council on Foreign Relations

In August 2014, President Enrique Peña Nieto passed the energy reform package, which will lead to the most important change in the history of Mexico’s energy landscape.
The Congress approved nine new laws and amendments to existing laws, establishing a new legal framework for Mexico’s energy industry.
The reform breaks up a 75-year old state monopoly over energy, allowing private and international companies to invest in oil, gas, and electricity generation. Among the world’s top oil producers, Mexico has seen its production hobble over the past decade because of a lack of investment and expertise. The reform will allow foreign companies to bring in capital and technology, which would boost energy production and contribute one percentage point of GDP by 2018, according to some estimates. On August 13, the Ministry of Energy (SENER) announced the results of Round Zero, where Pemex was granted 83% of Mexico’s 2P reserves (Proven and Probable Reserves) and 21% of Mexico’s prospective resources. Despite the seemingly never-ending drop in oil prices worldwide, Mexico’s first-ever licensing round is still a go.
Panel discussions will explore the future of Mexico’s energy sector and its role on a global scale. Steps taken toward the implementation of the reform, the outcome of Rounds Zero and One and prospects for Round Two will be evaluated. Opportunities and challenges will be highlighted in the fields of oil & gas exploration, refining, and logistics, with special attention to deep water and shale. The forum will explore project finance instruments and the role of PPPs.

Foreign Affairs and Nation Roadshow will convene high-level experts and leaders from the public and private sectors to discuss the challenges and opportunities faced by the transportation and communication infrastructure industries in Mexico. The keynote, plenary, and breakout sessions will explore the dynamics of Mexican infrastructure development and the underlying National Infrastructure Program (NIP), the role of public private partnerships (PPPs) and the scope of the national Telecommunications Reform. Attendees will have the opportunity to meet with speakers in one-on-one meetings at the conclusion of the sessions.

Organized in collaboration with the Ministry of Communications and Transport (Secretaría de Comunicaciones y Transporte – SCT), this forum was originally planned to take place on October 24th 2013. The event was postponed on the request of the Ministry due to the floods that occurred in September 2013 and the subsequent reconstruction works needed in various states. The registration page will re-open as soon as a new date is confirmed.
