August, 2018: Andrs Manuel Lpez Obrador's (AMLO's) Plans for Mexico's Oil & Gas Sector -


The "AMLO's
Plans for Mexico's Oil & Gas Sector"
report has been added
to's offering.

Mexico's President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who will take
office on December 1, has begun outlining his plans for the country's
oil sector, which include the construction of at least one oil refinery
and a transfer of state oil firm Pemex's headquarters to the
oil-producing state of Campeche.

Lopez Obrador, known by his acronym AMLO, a veteran left-winger who won
a landslide victory on July 1 in his third run for office, having
previously campaigned in 2006 and 2012, had caused some uncertainty in
the oil sector with a pledge early in this year's campaign to make
corrections to the energy reform.

In campaigning, AMLO pledged to review all the contracts so far awarded
in the country's oil and gas auctions to ensure transparency had been
observed on behalf of the energy regulatory commission (CRE), vowing to
cancel any contract found to have been won through corrupt practices.
