Mexico is on its way to becoming one of the world’s most attractive upstream investment destinations as a result of the opening of the hydrocarbons market through the Energy Reform. Over the past year, the first three phases of Round One have overseen the allocation of 30 contractual areas, welcoming into the market many foreign players in addition to detonating a national onshore oil industry, a success achieved despite the low oil prices. At the same time, PEMEX has been transforming its structure and strategy to adjust to both of these new situations and is pursuing new objectives as a productive enterprise of the state. As the Mexican oil and gas industry changes, PEMEX, private operators, suppliers and service providers find themselves at a turning point, where success will depend on their ability to adapt to the workings and needs of an entirely new market, which is still being defined today.

The topics presented are those that will matter most to the key stakeholders driving the evolution of the industry, making Mexico Oil & Gas Review the ultimate industry reference.

As the full opening of Mexico’s electricity market materializes in the wake of 2013’s Energy Reform, private players are vying for position in the generation and distribution sectors, taking advantage of a new and improved operational framework, while a streamlined CFE is poised to remain a leading force in the country’s power sector for years to come. New entrants are asserting their roles as electricity producers and the demand for clean energy sources such as solar, wind and natural gas-powered technologies will put their plans to the test. The new legal frameworks will enable a wider participation of other technologies in the country’s energy mix, such as geothermal energy. New regulatory bodies will ensure that companies are successfully integrated into the country’s energy matrix and the launch of the wholesale electricity market will officially open a new avenue for energy trading and availability that many players eagerly expect. With all the opportunities that are materializing, 2017 will set the direction the Mexican energy sector will take for the next five years. In this context, Mexico Energy Review is an essential read for stakeholders in both the public and private sectors who seek to understand the trends that are shaping the energy industry in Mexico.

The Mexican automotive industry rode a roller-coaster in 2016. While sales numbers soared beyond all-time records, the macroeconomic landscape hit manufacturing and exporting operations. New investments brought by KIA and Audi in the second half of the year barely countered the impact of low oil prices and currency volatility that led to production cuts. Despite the ride, the country held its position as the seventh-largest vehicle manufacturer and the fourth most important exporter. As Mexico moves toward a production goal of 5 million vehicles by 2020, boosting the nation’s advantages becomes more important than ever. With further investments to come, there is a need for better infrastructure and more efficient manufacturing processes. The introduction of the TPP agreement will bring new business opportunities but it will also require the country to increase its competitiveness against other manufacturing hubs. Mexico is destined to strengthen its position in the global automotive supply chain based on a highly skilled workforce, experienced and skilled auto parts suppliers and a stable environment.

Over the last decade, American and European aerospace OEMs and suppliers have sought new destinations that offered competitive labor costs and promising R&D potential.
