More than two dozen UK subsea companies are heading to Mexico this week on trade mission which aims to match North Sea expertise with the requirements of the emerging oil and gas sector in Latin America’s second largest economy.
Lead by Aberdeen-based Subsea UK, the trade mission will showcase more than 25 companies – many of them from the Tayside and Grampian regions – to connect them with the key players in the industry as they look to exploit the export opportunities in one of the fastest-rising oil and gas provinces in the world.
These companies will be given the opportunity to showcase their products and services to operators, potential customers and partners, and get the chance to network with government and industry officials.
Neil Gordon, Chief Executive, Subsea UK said: ”Since 2014, Mexico’s energy reform programme has opened up new opportunities for UK oil and gas companies. There are currently more than 25 British companies active in Mexico’s oil and gas sector, with many more looking at the emerging opportunities.
“Mexico’s deep water oil projects are crucial to the optimal recovery of the country’s reserves. UK subsea firms could play a major role in helping to maximize Mexico’s oil output, exporting the wealth of skills, innovation and experience honed in the North Sea.”
The energy showcase sales mission to Mexico takes place from 26 September to 2 October in Villahermosa and Ciudad Del Carmen, Mexico City.
