February 2020


Welcome to the February edition of Energy Panorama.

We concluded February with our annual Mexico Energy Roundtable. Across several panels we convened frank and open discussion that underscored the challenges in Mexico today, but also highlighted possibilities and the outlook for the sector in 2020. We also replicated our successful model from Bogota last year and convened executive roundtables focused on energy transition issues and the social license to operate. Stay tuned for our event report, but in the meantime check out photos from the events below.

We continued our analysis of renewables in the region and our non-resident fellow, Leonardo Beltran, expanded upon last month’s podcast examining the “Samba” auction model and Brazil’s evolving power market in his essay published in FuturEnergy’s February edition.

We are also pleased to share the always-unique analysis of IOA board member Chris Sladen and his monthly essay written for ANZMEX.

Our webinar series in March will delve into how the oil sector is confronting the climate challenge and implications for Latin America, particularly the region’s offshore developments.

If you missed last month’s Energy Panorama, be sure to check out our report Baja California Energy Outlook 2020-2025. The Spanish version of the report is forthcoming.

We head to Buenos Aires on March 17-18 for our annual Argentina Energy Roundtable and discussions of the potential for leveraging the country’s energy potential for economic development and plugging into the global LNG market.
