28 October Mexico Market update

  • 16:00 – 17:00
    By Holland House Mexico
    Since the liberalization of Mexico’s energy market in 2013, its oil and gas sector has seen 9 bidding rounds, 107 new contracts, 75 new operators, a contract execution success rate of 67% and an estimated investment of US$161 billion. New operators include Shell, Talos Energy, BP and Eni, amongst others. In addition, BHP won Mexico’s first farmout with PEMEX for the Trion deepwater field. The arrival of Mexico’s new administration in 2018 marked a new phase in the Mexican oil and gas industry: production. Mexico is currently pushing for domestic production with NOC PEMEX and the 75 new operators operating in the country. Since the opening of the energy market several oil finds have been made and operators such as Shell and BHP have entered the exploration phase for their deepwater blocks. On top of that, Eni started production from its shallow water Miztón field in July 2019, making Eni the first international company to produce oil in Mexico. Similarly, Fieldwood Energy expects to start production from its Pokoch field offshore Mexico in the fourth quarter of 2020. What is the current status of the Mexican oil and gas industry, where are the opportunities for the supply chain and for infrastructure projects, and what should companies new to the market consider when doing business in Mexico? These topics will be discussed in the Mexico Market Update.

    Installing a Miniature Offshore Wind Farm
    In this interactive serious game, by DOB-Academy, participants will be asked to design and build an offshore wind farm. From the wind farm layout to the vessel selection, the teams need to make decisions based on installation time, cost, and risks. Prior to the game a DOB-teacher will provide the necessary technical knowledge to make the proper trade-offs, from designing the optimal wind farm to planning your installation strategy. Each team will have ‘personal’ targets and preferences and will face dilemmas that occur based on the amount of risk that they have taken. After the teams have design their wind farm they will be given a certain time and budget to complete the construction of their wind farm
