UK oil and gas experience and expertise shared with Mexico

3 October 2017

Mexico’s offshore oil and gas sector will gain insights from the UK Continental Shelf at a key event taking place today (3 October).

The British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico is hosting an Energy Day in the country – bringing together around 600 of Mexico’s leading energy professionals to discuss what’s next for the country’s sector.

Stephen Marcos Jones, Director of Business Excellence with Oil & Gas UK, is one of the key speakers at the event which comes at a defining period in the history of energy in Mexico, its connectivity to energy across North America and the ways that refined products are distributed and energy is traded.

“This is an excellent opportunity to hear more about what’s happening in Mexico following reform a few years ago which has enabled local and foreign private investment into the energy sector after decades of the industry being nationalised,” said Stephen Marcos Jones.

“I’ll be giving an overview of the UK Continental Shelf and covering issues such as the efficiency measures industry is taking to manage its way through the downturn, as well as the steps Government have taken to make the basin one of the most fiscally attractive regimes in the world,” added Mr Marcos Jones, who is also attending tomorrow’s ‘farm out’ of exploration and extraction licences.

“This is also another valuable opportunity to highlight the capabilities and expertise of our world-class supply chain which we are trying to help diversity into global markets.”
