  • After years of debate, on December of 2013, the Mexican Congress approved the energy reform bill, which completely overhauled Mexico’s energy sector, its related activities and the operation of the state owned entities that until that time monopolized almost all of the Mexican energy industry’s activities. Among other significant amendments, the Energy Reform lifted historic bans and restrictions on private investment in certainactivities of the sector, introduced international industry practices and paved the way for the restructuring of Pemex and CFE. We have prepared this Handbook to provide our clients and friends with a general overview of the business opportunities which are available in Mexico in the newly-opened energy sector.
