“With energy reform in Mexico progressing steadily, activity in South and West Texas is expected to migrate there in the coming years,” said Thomas Tunstall, research director for the UTSA Institute for Economic Development who has been a leading expert on the economic impact of the Eagle Ford Shale. “This reform will enable private companies to bid on blocks and operate in Mexico in 2015. Not only is this an opportunity for companies in Mexico, but this prospect for shale oil and gas exploration and production represents an export opportunity for U.S. companies that have pioneered the unconventional techniques in use now.”
