The United States – Mexico Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the first U.S.-Mexico Energy Forum, which will take place December 8 and 9, 2016 at The Woodlands Resort and Conference Center, The Woodlands, Texas.
Given the importance of the energy sector for economic growth and recent developments that have positioned the North American region in a path towards energy independence, we are presenting a unique opportunity to discuss the different factors that have contributed to this major shift in the energy industry.
According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the U.S. has significantly reduced the oil imports in order to fulfill its daily oil demand. While in 2005 those imports accounted for 65% of the demand, in 2015, the U.S. imported only 28%, after a record year of domestic oil production. Some estimates believe that by 2020, the U.S. will import 11% of its daily oil needs, and that those imports could be supplied by Canada and Mexico.
Canada’s oil reserves are the third largest in the world, and for our partner the development of the infrastructure to facilitate exporting their crude oil is critical. In regards to Mexico, the focus is still on the energy reform enacted in 2013. It is still premature to reach a conclusion on the benefits for Mexico’s economy, as several bids are still in progression, and they represent and enormous opportunity for foreign companies.
The U.S.-Mexico Energy Forum, is the Chamber’s contribution to facilitate the exchange of ideas and collaboration to identify common challenges, solutions and opportunities in the energy industry of North America.
