On December 20, 2013, in response to chronically declining oil reserves and under-investment in both exploration and critical energy infrastructure, the Mexican federal and state governments passed historic amendments to the Mexican Constitution. These amendments signal a clear political commitment to end more than 70 years of strict state monopoly over upstream oil and gas exploration and many other basic petroleum and petrochemical activities and, potentially, open the door to a wave of foreign investment. The Mexican Congress is now in the process of drafting legislation and regulations that will invite private participation into the Mexican oil patch for the first time in many decades, and it is anticipated that this legislation will be in near final form by the beginning of May. If the Mexican government "gets it right," the potential for investment is tremendous.
At this Forum, Rogelio López Velarde, founding member of leading Mexican energy law firm López Velarde, Heftye y Soria, and Joe Amador, Managing Director and head of Latin America investment banking for Houston's Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. along with participants from King & Spalding, will describe the ongoing Mexican energy reform, address issues, opportunities and potential pitfalls for foreign investors. The panel will invite questions and comments from the audience about what may be coming next as the Mexican government labors through the legislative and regulatory process.
