Speaker Interviews

Jaime Pérez de Laborda

“The government needs to define clearly its strategic objective going-forward and the role of the private sector in that strategy.”

Warren Levy

“Our current focus is on mobilizing our first drilling rig to start our exploration and evaluation program in late Q1.”

Javier Areitio

“In any case we do believe that the market fundamentals (in Mexico) remain in place, namely resource and demand growth.”

Jeff Pavlovic

“The participants in our private auctions are driven by the need for a competitive, transparent, and efficient process; their challenge has been the complexity and cost of carrying out an individual search for bilateral contracts.”

Diego Peralta (representing AINDA)

“The cancellation of the auctions has complicated the possibility of signing long-term contracts with a qualified offtaker that make the project bankable”

Paul Centeno Lappas

“We choose to regard the cancellation as an opportunity. It forced us to review /reset our business strategy to become less dependent on governmental decisions.”

Yann Kirsch

“Infrastructure is our biggest challenge. Inter-connectivity and the capacity to process hydrocarbons in harmony with Pemex’s current capacity.”
