Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues,
It is my pleasure to welcome you to attend the World Gas Congress•Mexico 2018 event, which will be held in Mexico City during January 29-30, 2018.

The Mexican gas industry is taking its steps into the liberalized, open market paradigm brought about by 2013’s Energy Reform. In order to create a competitive and efficient natural gas market that attracts investments, guarantees energy security in the country, offers a natural gas supply at competitive prices that benefit all sectors, the government has established a new model in natural gas, which allows the participation of private companies throughout the value chain.

The implementation of the Energy Reform has been reflected in the participation of private companies in the tenders for the assignment of fields for the exploration and extraction of hydrocarbons, the establishment of a gas pipeline construction program, the publication of the document "Policy Public for the Implementation of the Natural Gas Market" and the open season process for stakeholders to reserve transportation capacity on the network.

Mexico’s natural gas demand is driven by new natural gas-fired plants. SENER projects an increase in natural gas demand by the power generation sector from 3.6 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) in 2015 to 5.4 Bcf/d in 2029. Natural gas-fired capacity will account for 24.9 gigawatts (GW) of total capacity additions from 2016 to 2029.

World Gas Mexico 2018 aims to be the timely event for international and national stakeholders to successfully grasp Mexico natural gas infrastructure opportunities, from E&P, liquefaction, pipeline, storage to gas power, by exploring latest expansion plan, engagement rules, gas price and trade trends, planned projects together with technologies showcase and good practice sharing.

I look forward to your participation in World Gas Congress•Mexico 2018.

Best regards,

Organizing Committee of World Gas Congress•Mexico 2018
