MEXICO CITY, May 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Wildcat Publishing Inc. has launched its inaugural book on Mexico – The Oil & Gas Year, Mexico 2011 – a comprehensive and authoritative guide to the country's energy industry. Published in co-operation with Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex), the book was produced by a team of international journalists based in Mexico City for seven months. "This book should now be considered the official reference point for Mexico oil and gas," said Gustavo Garcia Hernandez, subdirector of planning and evaluation for Pemex.
The Oil & Gas Year, Mexico 2011 draws together interviews, articles and resources dedicated to every sector of the country's energy industry, including exploration and production, downstream and refining, oilfield services, and banking and finance. The 204-page report showcases the views and opinions of the industry's most influential figures, including Juan Jose Suarez Coppel, Director General of Pemex; Carlos Morales Gil, Director General of Pemex E&P; Juan Carlos Zepeda Molina, President of the National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH); Francisco Salazar, President of the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE); and Carlos Guzman, President of ProMexico. The book was published in partnership with Pemex and ProMexico, and in collaboration with Navix, a leading local financing company of the local energy industry, and Lopez Veralde Heftye y Soria (LVHS), a leading local oil and gas law firm.
"Mexico holds a position as one of the world's most iconic markets," said Guillaume Doane, regional director of The Oil & Gas Year. "The market is currently experiencing developments that could reshape the industry for many years to come. Our strong partnership with Pemex enabled us to complete the most authoritative publication ever written about the country's energy sector and its leaders."
The Oil & Gas Year, Mexico 2011 gives in-depth coverage on the major recent developments in the local energy sector, particularly Pemex's new incentive-based contracting model and its plans for deepwater production, which are due to mark a renaissance for the country's oil industry since production began shrinking in 2004. In total, the editorial team met with more than 80 individuals and companies. The publication traces the key oil and gas discoveries of recent years, highlights the key projects that mark Mexico's infrastructural development, and tracks the crucial reforms that are reshaping the nation's economy.
