Political Uncertainty and Mexico’s Energy Reform

Mexico has successfully implemented its energy reform, which has led to increased private participation in its oil and gas blocks and continued interest from major international exploration and production firms. Now, as Mexico prepares to hold a presidential election in July 2018, many investors wonder if changes in leadership will also lead to changes to the implementation of the reform or in the contracts negotiated with the current administration. 

At this event, Jesús Reyes-Heroles, former CEO of Pemex and Mexico’s former secretary of energy, examined the latest developments in the country’s energy sector. A panel of experts also offered perspectives on the potential for changes to the reform and its implementation.
