Call For Papers

Oil, Gas and Energy Law Intelligence ( invites submissions for a Special issue focusing on laws regulating the Mexican energy sector and the transition that is currently taking place. The guest editor for this special issue will be Professor Owen L. Anderson (Kay Bailey Hutchison Center for Energy, Law & Business, University of Texas School of Law).

The laws governing the energy sector in Mexico have been subject of a substantial change recently. On December 20, 2013, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto signed historic constitutional reforms related to Mexico's energy sector aimed at reversing oil and gas production declines.

The energy reforms transform Pemex into a "productive state enterprise" with more autonomy and a lower tax burden than before, but make it subject to competition with private investors. They create different types of contracts for private companies interested in investing in Mexico, including production-sharing and licensing; allow companies to post reserves for accounting purposes; establish a sovereign wealth fund; and create new regulators.

We encourage submission of relevant papers, studies, and brief comments on various aspects of this subject. The topics may cover a wide range of issues such as oil and gas, coal or electricity. Submissions may examine issues such as production sharing contracts, licensing, share purchase agreements and related state approvals, environmental aspects of oil and gas production, transportation and processing, project financing, regulation of oil and gas exports, dispute resolution, taxation and customs issues in energy sector, geopolitical issues relating to Mexico and the wider region, regulation of gas and electricity markets, and background information related to energy and environmental laws and regulations.

We encourage submission of relevant papers and studies in the scope of the subject. The topics may cover all mentioned aspects of the currently happening legal changes (planned or executed), even if not directly mentioned by the text of the call.

Papers should be submitted by the end of February 2016. Please submit material or any questions to

Feel free to forward this call for papers to colleagues who may be interested in contributing to the special issue.
