(MEI Report 883 — Houston, Dec. 17, 2018)
This report provides an overview of accomplishments and setbacks that Mexico’s upstream regulator (CNH) experienced under Mr. Zepeda’s leadership. We consider the elements in play that could have led to a decision to continue in office until the end of his statutory term (April 30, 2019) or resign (as was requested of the president-commissioners both of CNH and CRE).
Annex A is a letter of appreciation of an English proficiency workshop held in CNH in 2012. Annex B is a translation of Mr. Zepeda’s farewell letter addressed to public opinion. Fortunately, CRE leadership remains unchanged.
The report draws on discussions in Mexico City during the period Nov. 30-Dec.8 with industry stakeholders and observers. It also draws on 10 years of reporting on the institutional development of the National Hydrocarbons Commission.
