ICIS Webinar: Mexico's Natural Gas Infrastructure

Mexico’s natural gas demand has soared over the past few years, and this demand is set to continue growing thanks to the rapid expansion of the country’s natural gas transport system. Mexican gas consumption will increasingly have an impact on markets in the southern US; imports from the US have tripled over the past five years and could double again before the end of the decade, according to some predictions.

In this webinar, James Fowler, editor of the ICIS Mexico Energy Report, gives an overview of the Mexican natural gas market, outlining the key infrastructure expansion projects currently being developed and the demand fundamentals driving the country’s rapid gasification.
