In 2018, Mexico elected a new government that implemented several new reforms within the first few months after the election. One of the major changes included a plan to invest in the State Productive Enterprises (EPE) Pemex and CFE. What does this mean for the previously approved constitutional-level energy reforms from 2013, and what can we expect on a macroeconomic level in the country’s oil and gas sector for the years ahead?
Since the long-debated Energy Reform, Mexico has embarked on a total transformation of its energy sector on a scale unmatched anywhere else in the world. This resulted in an expansion of Mexico’s natural gas pipeline infrastructure from 9,000 km in 2010 to almost 20,000 km today.
Regardless of the political transformations, it remains our view that for long-term sustainable success, stakeholders in the pipeline and oil and gas industry at large will have to work together. To ensure safe and reliable operation and performance in the short- to medium-term and to seek innovative solutions for challenges ten, twenty or even thirty years from now. Only with a combined effort can we meet the future requirements placed on our industry in an increasingly complex environment. Pipeline safety means going “Beyond Compliance”.
Taking place on October 17, 2019, this seminar aims to share knowledge, experience and key developments in the field of pipeline inspection and integrity management. Industry experts and stakeholders will provide these insights through presentations and workshops. The seminar is intended for technical professionals, engineers, supervisors, coordinators, managers and anyone else who is (or will be) involved in or responsible for pipeline operations, integrity and safety. Participants from the construction sector, pipeline owners/operators and regulators should have basic knowledge or a background in pipeline operations or integrity. Participants will have access to a compact program designed to broaden their general understanding of technical aspects and trends in the field of pipeline integrity. At the same time, they will get a better understanding of the direction the industry is taking from speakers representing the viewpoints of the stakeholders in Mexico's pipeline industry.
The ROSEN seminar will be held on the 35th floor of the “Torre Punta Reforma” building , located on Av. Paseo de la Reforma 180.

Managing Threats to Pipeline Integrity - Operator View
The goal of zero incidents is more than running a pipeline integrity program. For TCEnergy (previously TransCanada), having a safe and reliable operation is vital to its ongoing business and one of the main pillars for its vast success in the pipeline transportation business. TCEnergy operates several large-diameter transmission lines in Mexico and co-owns the marine pipeline that originates in southern Texas and runs to Altamira and Tuxpan.Close
Mexican Investment Climate: An Outside View from an Insider
The Dutch Embassy is a long-term stakeholder in Mexico. Large companies from the Netherlands have settled in Mexico permanently, particularly in the oil and gas sector. The Dutch Embassy facilitates yearly trade missions, organized by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO), resulting in the creation of the Holland House Mexico aimed at providing support to Dutch and Mexican companies by exchanging knowledge, technologies and investments.Close

The Mexican Agency for Safety, Energy and Environment (ASEA) is in charge of regulating and supervising the facilities and activities of hydrocarbons. Since its creation in 2014, ASEA has focused on the regulatory structure in Mexico and has updated several regulations aimed at improving industrial and operational safety as well as environmental protection.Close
Mexican Energy Sector: A Critical Assessment
The Energy Reform is the most important legislation Mexico has passed in decades, resulting in an opening of the sector to private companies and foreign investment, from upstream to retail. What can we expect from the incoming administration when it comes to maximizing efficiency in the sector and attracting and maintaining new investments?Close
Beyond Compliance - Connecting the Dots
Understanding applicable threats to an operator’s pipeline, and properly managing the identified threats, is absolutely critical for continued safe and reliable service as well as for regulatory compliance at the state and federal level. Managing safe operations means going beyond compliance.Close
