Mexico Oil & Gas “Apertura" - Round 1 Update: Deep Water Exploration

Thus far, 26 Oil & Gas Companies have initiated the prequalification process for Mexico's deep water exploration round according to official information.   

Mexico's deep water round contractual and regulatory requirements are complex and untested. It is important to clearly understand these requirements, the interrelations, and develop a detailed regulatory road map to ensure a smooth and timely execution synchronized with the technical exploration requirements and milestones. 

HSE International LLC at SPE Symposium on Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability, 30 – 31 March, Mexico City, Mexico.

HSE International LLC’s Managing Director Fernando Rodriguez, a member of the Conference Committee, will moderate along with Mary Beth Snodgrass (Local Contenect LLC), the following Panel: Operationalizing Sustainable Development.

Speakers at this panel will include: Juan Carlos Belausteguigoitia with the Mexico Institute of Technology, Nayelli Garcia with Schlumberger, Mark Thorpe with Torex Gold, and Karla Torrez with Shell.

Often times O&G industry discussions on sustainable development topics are focused on strategy, policy, guidelines and other key high-level statements, while often the biggest challenge for operators and service companies is implementing good international industry practices (GIIP) to achieve sustainable development. This panel will focus on operationalizing solutions to social, economic, environmental and security risks and impacts.

Panelists will share stories of their successes as well as on-going challenges and how they are being addressed. With local and international experience structuring and implementing sustainable development practices, the panelists will discuss operationalizing sustainable development in Mexico at a pivotal time: at the beginning of the country's “Apertura” and during a low oil price environment. 




The SPE Mexico Health, Safety, Environment, and Sustainability Symposium: Collaboration for Future Growth, will get together operators, regulators, and new entrants to Mexico as they collaborate on how to identify and establish the best practices and protocols each has to offer to achieve sustainable, secure, and safe operations in an expanding market.
