Mexican oil and gas links strengthened

Mexican oil and gas links strengthened

A delegation from the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico will arrive in Aberdeen next week to look at opportunities to build closer business links between the Scottish and Mexican oil and gas sectors.

The visit follows a successful trade mission by oil and gas companies to Mexico in September, which included attendance at Energy Day 2016 in Mexico City, a visit to Ciudad Del Carmen as well as a tour of Petrofac’s facility in Villahermosa.

Chamber membership director Liam Smyth: "The reform of the Mexican energy sector was very evident in the number of UK companies that are now entering the Mexican market, finding partners and quoting for projects. 

"There are now over 40 operators working in Mexico and the supply chain is expanding." 

Director general of the British Chamber of Commerce in Mexico, Teresa de Lay, will be in Aberdeen on 7 November to meet with north east businesses at a round-table discussion.

The conversation on Monday covers the reforms, and the challenges and opportunities for doing business in Mexico.
