Since the historic constitutional amendment of December 2013, there have been a series of important milestones along the path to reforming and modernizing Mexico’s oil and gas sector. December 5 marks the latest, and perhaps most important, test for the reform and the goals the Pena Nieto government outlined at the outset of its administration. Almost exactly three years to the date after the reform was promulgated, several large-scale projects and enormous investments in Mexico’s barely-explored deepwater will be auctioned, as will the first significant partnership opportunity with Pemex.
Join us for a webinar panel discussion featuring Jason Fargo, Latin America Team Leader at Energy Intelligence; Alejandra Leon, Director, Latin America Upstream at IHS; and, Jeremy Martin, Vice President for Energy & Sustainability at the Institute of the Americas. The webinar will be held Tuesday, December 6 at 9:00am San Diego (11:00 am Mexico City; GMT/UTC – 8 hours).
Timed to coincide with the results of the deepwater oil and gas auction in Mexico, the panel will take stock of Mexico’s energy reform with an emphasis on Pemex, the country’s upstream, and partnerships with Pemex. The panel will also assess the status of institutional advances in Mexico’s oil and gas sector.
Chile’s energy sector garnered international headlines earlier this year with a successful electric auction. Chile’s auction was part of a highly competitive renewable energy wave sweeping the region from Mexico to Peru to Argentina that has drawn analysis in terms of the competitivity of renewables, but also the implications for system operation and grid management. In northern Chile, the question of incorporating renewables, particularly solar energy is a major point of discussion. Similarly, the discussions surrounding integration with Peru continue apace and prospects for electric interconnection remain real and must be considered by energy markets in both countries.
Join us for a webinar presentation led by Daniel Salazar Jaque, Director of Chile’s electric system operator CDEC-SING. He will provide an overview of Chile’s northern electric system and network, local interconnection and regional integration prospects from Chile’s vantage, as well as how to best to manage the increased deployment and insertion of renewable energy in northern Chile with an emphasis on solar energy developments.
The webinar will be held Thursday, November 3 at 11:00am San Diego (3:00 pm Santiago; GMT/UTC – 8 hours). Salazar’s formal presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
