Mexico Energy Intelligence®

MEXICO ENERGY INTELLIGENCE® (MEI) is a commercial and policy advisory service offered by BAKER & ASSOCIATES, ENERGY CONSULTANTS, a management consultancy based in Houston. MEI reports seek to build bridges between the global energy conversation in Houston and the national conversation in Mexico. Our reports examine policy, institutional, regulatory, and cultural issues in Mexico’s energy sector and its global ecosystem. Safety in offshore operations is of special concern. Reports are distributed principally on a paid, subscription basis. Corporate, University and Student subscription plans are available.

Our reports seek to measure developments in Mexico against global standards of an open market.

Individual reports are generally made available by calling 832-434-3928 or emailing

Research Services

Mexico’s Energy Sector is not only a topic for analysis and reporting; it is also a global community of people from several dozen countries who have a professional interest in staying informed about current developments and underlying issues related to commerce, investment, law and regulation. It is, therefore, as important to meet people, and exchange ideas, impressions and concerns, as it is to study data and prepare reports.
