Gabriel Ruiz Quoted in Texas Lawbook on Mexico Energy Deals

“T&K Closes Two Mexico Energy Reform Bids”

Lawyers from Thompson & Knight’s Dallas and Mexico offices recently worked on some of the most historic and highly-anticipated deals in Mexico in wake of the country’s 2013 energy reforms.

“The award of deepwater blocks to companies like Chevron, Exxon, Statoil, Total, CNOOC, BHPB and others provide the credibility the new oil and gas legal regime was looking for and will likely help attract additional foreign investment into Mexico,” Ruiz said. “In addition, the Trion result will further encourage a new era for Pemex, where we will see it bidding alone against other oil companies and seeking additional partners for E&P projects in Mexico, something that had not happened since its inception in 1938.”
