Cotemar Flourishing Under the Changing Energy Sector Landscape in Mexico


The changing landscape of the Mexican energy industry looks like it will be tough for companies that won Round 1 tenders. It already seems like they may face challenges in making their investments profitable in an environment where there was only one supplier, customer, operator, and partner. For Pemex, the challenge will be to learn how to co-exist with the new entrants into the market.


New companies like Cotemar already own wells. The challenge for them will be resolving land conflicts inherited from Pemex. One such area of conflict is Veracruz, which is under Cotemar. Other challenges will include how to deal with infrastructural theft as well as the threat of organized crime. Despite these difficulties, there is hope for a positive outcome in the revolution of the Mexican oil sector.


The energy sector revolution must take into consideration three goals that include increasing output, guaranteeing national interests of tax collection, and offering attractive incentives to companies willing to invest in the sector.
