Investment opportunities in the natural gas market
In 1995, the Mexican Government began a structural reform of the natural gas industry in order to attract private investment and to promote competition in the national production sector. A new legal scheme was introduced with this reform, which allows private participation in the transportation, storage, distribution and marketing of natural gas. These activities were previously reserved for PEMEX.
Investment opportunities in electricity
The growing need for economic resources to allow the continued expansion and modernization of the national electric sector - principally for supply for industry - led to the need for a reform of the Public Service Law on Electricity in 1992. This reform was intended to incorporate private investment as a complement to public resources destined for the development of the electric sector.
