Pemex Migration Regime: Discretionality vs. Market Solution

Pemex Migration Regime: Discretionality vs. Market Solution

This report, MEI 827, describes the Pemex Migration Regime, its purposes, limitations, time-line and peculiar lexicon. The report reconstructs the time-line in 14 steps, each with its own technical vocabulary — much of which consists of neologisms like “migración” that have no prior usage in Mexican legislation or regulation. Examining these terms, many are found to be open-ended, allowing for administrative discretionality along the steps of the time-line. The migration regime is seen as transitional framework, a beta version of a future regime in which Pemex may be trusted to choose its own partners.
