Market_Note_cover_new_logoHOUSTON — This report, Market Comment 041, examines how the vision and legislation for the redesign of Mexico’s 2014 oil and power markets was informed by the experiences of other countries and regions, particularly, Norway, Brazil and the United States. The final shape of the reform also bears the stamp of Mexican traditional thinking about the State’s role in the energy sector. Table 1 provides a list of titles of legislation that forms part of the machinery of the current market and regulatory design. A title list of related reports is provided.
