Mexico’s Energy Reform presents enormous opportunities for the energy industry in Mexico over the next three years, with PEMEX and a consortium including Sierra Oil & Gas, Talos Energy and Premier Oil all owning blocks. The Mexican Government, through SENER and CNH, will be releasing new blocks in further licensing rounds this month and in December, enabling the international oil community in Mexico to increase production through expertise in deep-water drilling, shale gas and EOR. IOCs and PEMEX have a major need for well trained, Mexican people, capable of working across all relevant fields in oil and gas, be they geologists, lawyers and engineers throughout exploration to technicians, operators and engineers in the production phases. This calls for major education and training initiatives, between the Mexican Government, international oil community and the public education system, supported by the private training community, in order to get the 135,000 people required to work in the industry.
