Course Content

Online Webinar - 2:00 p.m., CDT, 1 hour duration.

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.

  • Petroleum geology of Mexico
  • Individual basins: history and producing formations

  • Tampico
  • Chiapas-Tabasco
  • Offshore Campeche
