Quoting sovereignty and national security concerns, the liberalization of Mexico’s energy industry is being dismantled. The liberalization, which took place following a constitutional reform approved in 2013 (the “Reform”), brought an influx of domestic and foreign investments that revitalized Mexico’s O&G and power sectors. Nevertheless, in the last few months, measures to resume government control of Mexico’s free energy markets have intensified with the adoption and proposal of regulation affecting investor’s rights and the value of projects.

Organized by the Mexico Sub-chapter, the goal of this webinar is to discuss the aforementioned measures, as well as certain domestic and international legal recourses available to domestic and foreign investors.

Specifically, our expert speakers will discuss:

- Government actions that weaken Mexico’s free energy markets, specifically, the New Rules for the Import and Export of Hydrocarbons, the bill to amend Mexico’s Hydrocarbons Law, recent amendments to the power sector, and the possibility of a constitutional reform.
- Domestic claims available to private investors in the face of such measures, specifically, the nature and effects to the Amparo in Mexico and how it has been used so far.
- Treaty- and contract-based rights and actions afforded to foreign investors in protection of their interests in Mexico.
