Mexico Energy Reform Update


Late Wednesday, the Mexican Senate passed the anticipated secondary legislation to Mexico’s energy sector overhaul. The historic energy reform legislation now moves to President Enrique Peña Nieto for signature, which is expected to occur in the coming days. Additionally, reports from Mexico suggest that the Energy Ministry will soon announce the awards of “Round Zero” to PEMEX (earlier than anticipated), and PEMEX joint venture related bidding could occur by year-end. The first tender process qualification and bid round, known as “Round One,” is expected to occur in 2015, and at least one bid round is expected to be conducted per year through 2025.

Search Tips:

You may use the wildcard symbol (*) as a root expander.  A search for "anti*" will find not only "anti", but also "anti-trust", "antique", etc.

Entering two terms together in a search field will behave as though an "OR" is being used.  For example, entering "Antique Motorcars" as a Client Name search will find results with either word in the Client Name.


AND and OR may be used in a search.  Note: they must be capitalized, e.g., "Project AND Finance." 

The + and - sign operators may be used.  The + sign indicates that the term immediately following is required, while the - sign indicates to omit results that contain that term. E.g., "+real -estate" says results must have "real" but not "estate".

To perform an exact phrase search, surround your search phrase with quotation marks.  For example, "Project Finance".

Searches are not case sensitive.
