MEI report coverHOUSTON — This report observes that many of the concepts that are embraced in the 2014 energy reform have their roots in ideas that had first appeared in previous presidential administrations, for example, the idea proposed during the Fox administration that Pemex’s board of directors should include executives from the private sector.

The report identifies and critiques some dozen key terms and concepts that are found in the legislation of the energy reform that are either imprecise or are tropicalized to give a unique Mexican significance (proved reserves, for example).
