On December 11, Mexico launched a historic international tender for 14 shallow water blocks as part of the Round One bidding process set in motion by the Peña Nieto government’s energy reform measures.

Join us Thursday, December 18 at 10am San Diego time / 12pm Mexico City time for a virtual panel to analyze the first tender, contract terms, and conditions, as well as the potential competition and investment the historic bidding could unleash in the coming months and years. While the Mexican government has set very specific qualification requirements for possible bidders, as well as important investment, drilling and production targets, the backdrop of continued oil price volatility and questions around the exact tax and royalty scheme provide considerable room for further analysis.

To help us unwind and assess the issues, we are pleased to host: Miriam Grunstein, Non-Resident Scholar Mexico Center, Rice University & Consultant, Brilliant Energy Consulting, Antonio Souza, Senior Managing Director at Evercore Partners Mexico and Duncan Wood, Director of the Mexico Institute at the Woodrow Wilson Center.

Panelists’ remarks will be followed by a question and answer session. If you’re interested but unable to attend, please register anyway and we will send you the link.
