Join us on Thursday, September 12 at 10:00 am San Diego for a webinar: “Mexico’s Natural Gas Prospects Under AMLO” and discussion with Emily Medina, Energy Consultant and Energy Policy Research Foundation (EPRINC) Non-Resident Fellow. Emily will provide an overview of Mexico’s current natural gas panorama as well as her analysis and perspectives with regards to the transformation of sector.
Mexico’s energy sector is at a turning point. The policy choices the government takes now will determine the country’s energy security and prices going forward. Recent policy shifts by the Mexican government in natural gas pipelines and PEMEX’s joint ventures suggest that the administration might gradually become more receptive of private sector’s participation than what was expected since he took office in December. This could in turn unleash Mexico’s potential in oil and gas developments. Given the important role that natural gas has in Mexico’s economy and its abundant natural gas reserves, the government should incentivize investments in PEMEX’s fields through joint ventures, and establish a competitive natural gas market.
The webinar will be held on Thursday, September 12 at 10:00 am San Diego. Emily’s presentation will be followed by a live Q&A session with the audience.
