Mexico's Energy Sector Reform Worth The 76-Year Wait



Over the last decade, oil and gas supply-side analysts have noted the decline in Mexico’s hydrocarbon output with a fair degree of dismay. Ageing infrastructure, layers of red tape and alleged corruption have seen the country’s output drop from 3.6 million barrels per day (bpd) in 2004 to the current output level of just 2.5 million bpd.


Mexican market analysts’ standard response to the decline was a shrug of the shoulders accompanied by an all too familiar quip, “what do you expect – that’s Mexico.” The capacity to change things by bringing in private sector participation in general, and foreign direct investment in particular, was hamstrung by the concept of state ownership of natural resources enshrined in Mexico’s constitution since 1938.
