Latin America - events to watch 2014

Report summary

Latin America's upstream sector continues to be a hotbed of activity. The eyes of the industry will be turned to energy reform in Mexico and the future of its energy policy. After a busy year of licensing in 2013, we expect 2014 to have limited licensing across the region, led by Colombia's round which will offer onshore, offshore, conventional and unconventional blocks. In Brazil, we will finally see a ramp-up in production, mostly from pre-salt developments.
