The conference will bring together experts from government, business, and academic sectors to discuss the opening markets in Mexico. Experts will show companies in Texas what they can do to position themselves to get in on the ground level of new market opportunities.

Topics for discussion include:

  • products and services needed in Mexico’s oil and gas industry
  • how to conduct business with potential clients and partners in Mexico
  • U.S. and Mexico’s trade and regulatory requirements
  • how to position your company to profit from this new market

“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.”
