This report identifies themes and topics pertaining to hydrocarbon regulation that arose in presentations and discussions in the Hydrocarbon Regulator Conference, which was held at the University of Houston (UH) on Oct. 7, 2016. The report draws on panels on Brazil, Mexico and Colombia, also on the remarks of David Porter of the Texas Railroad Commission and Jacqueline Weaver of the UH Law Center. A jurisdiction’s regulatory efficiency may be measured by the number of windows at which an applicant must appear for permits: The Alberta Energy Regulator scores high, Mexico much lower.
