The U.S. Commercial Service is partnering with the Mexican Petroleum Institute this year to bring you a glimpse into the ‘new’ oil and gas reality on the ground. This event will provide a forum for Mexican Petroleum Institute (IMP) to give a market overview of how outside companies are now directly operating and how procurement strategies have become more dynamic as a result of Mexico’s historic energy reforms. IMP will highlight how their organization interacts with companies, promotes new technologies, and how suppliers and buyers must be more adaptive in their procurement. Additional presentations by IMP members Murphy Oil and Sierra Oil & Gas will focus on practical strategy, experiences, best practices, and advice for U.S. exporters in this dynamic market.
