The Mexican energy market has great needs in every area: E&P, liquid fuels, pipelines infrastructure, power generation, transmission, development of professionals, advisors, engineers, etc. It is a new area that can detonate a powerful change in the whole chain of activities.
I started off my career as a generalist M&A investment banker and got increasingly involved in the resources and energy sector, advising on several power, mining and oil and gas deals. I decided early on in my career to focus on the energy sector more broadly, given its importance and role in supporting all economic activity and its tie to geopolitics. I have been fortunate to gain exposure to all parts of the value chain in different roles, both as an advisor and, more recently, as an owner building a global energy consulting firm.
To bring an Asset Based Finance solution for strategic PEMEX suppliers. This technology was applied in other countries where HSBC has presence. So far, financing are behaving adequately and help the companies to bring state of the art equipment.
I have spent my whole career in the gas and energy services industry, my first job position being in the gas transmission sector.
Prior to my position at SK Innovation as VP of E&P Strategy & Planning, I have been involved in the oil and gas industry as an attorney in a major US law firm and as an investment banker and asset manager at Wall Street.
I was looking to move in-house just after the 1998 Asian economic crisis. A ex classmate offered me a role at Shell where they had an urgent opening to fill, and my experience was a good fit.
I was scholar of an oil and gas company that assigned me into oil and gas division during my practical training.
I joined a law firm that was involved with oil and gas, as soon as I became admitted to the PNG Bar.
I started downstream with a 200MW barge-mounted power-plant in 1995 in a country that no one else wanted to go to. Since then the energy industry, downstream & upstream, has been a passion of mine.
While I was studying in the US, Shell offered a summer internship at a refinery in Missouri. I never looked back after that.
In the early 1990s, I was a young attorney at an energy commodity trading company in Calgary, and in 1994 we sold that company to TransCanada, where I have been employed since.
After graduating from university I got the opportunity to do an international traineeship with Shell. I spent three months in Africa and was exposed to the many interesting aspects of this exciting industry.
As a business consultant growing up, I spent time in several different industries before landing in oil – or at least landing in fuels as was the case for me.
Mexico Petroleum Company’s focus is on upstream opportunities in Mexico.
Being able to collaborate with the leaders of this industry to ultimately unlock new opportunities for our clients and promote innovation, development and growth in the oil & gas sector.
