The goal of this e-symposium is to review the status of the Mexican upstream sector, and to provide a review of the most prolific and prospective areas in Mexico, with a focus on opportunities for international participation, given the upcoming energy reform in Mexico. The geological framework and main producing formations for each of the major producing regions will be included, starting with the Golden Lane, and including Tampico (Misantla Basin), Chiapas – Tabasco, Offshore Campeche, Cantarell, deepwater Gulf of Mexico (Catemaco and Perdido Fold Belt provinces), and unconventionals (north, northeast, and east-central Mexico). The presentation will also discuss the Energy Reform and what it means to both Mexico and international participants.

Structure of the E-Symposium
Each e-symposium consists of one-hour live e-symposium, along with material for one full day of independent study. The live portion will be followed by a full day of independent study (not a live event). The one-hour live e-symposium can be accessed from any computer anywhere in the world using a high-speed internet connection. After the event is over, you will receive via email information about accessing the asynchronous segment (not live) which consists of a recording of the event, your independent study materials, to be accessed and studied at any time. You will be able to email responses to the readings, along with your study question answers for CEU credit (if you sign up for the extended package).
