WHERE: Houston, Texas, Rice University*
WHEN: Thursday, February 12, 2015, 8:30am-3:00pm
Mexico’s energy reform has set the stage for significant changes in exploration and development activity in Mexican waters, and the opportunities for collaborative engagement with existing offshore players in U.S. waters could define how oil and gas is developed and produced in the Gulf of Mexico for years to come. This daylong conference will focus on the latest developments and emerging opportunities in offshore oil and gas regulation, safety and environmental protection. There will be discussion of the state of reform efforts in Mexico, the potential impact of these reforms on the recently approved transboundary hydrocarbon agreement, the reforms as a catalyst for transboundary cooperation in oil and gas, the prospect of common safety and environmental expectations, and emerging regulatory opportunities.
On Thursday, February 12, 2015, in Houston, Texas, the Mexico Institute is co-sponsoring the conference “Mexico’s Energy Reform: Opportunities and Challenges for International Engagement in the Gulf of Mexico.” The conference is sponsored in conjunction with the Baker Institute Center for Energy Studies and Mexico Center, the American Petroleum Institute, the Center for Offshore Safety, the Center for U.S. and Mexican Law at the University of Houston, and the Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi.
