NewsDoc™ Archive: Source Documents on Mexicos’ energy sector

Our digital archive of primary documents on Mexico’s oil and electricity industries is the work of more than 25 years. We donated a hundred linear feet of printed materials to the University of Houston Special Collections Library several years ago.

The data files exceed 100 GB. Some of these documents, once in the public domain, are no longer accessible in their original locations online.

In addition to these institutional documents, there are reports that we have prepared in the series “Public Policy Perspectives” that are intended as a public service for a wide readership.

These documents and reports are individually available in exchange for a donation, funds from which will support, first, our associates in Mexico and their families who have been affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and, second, our platform of market-oriented research, reporting, and outreach.

Aug 17 (Doc. ID 9295) Energy policy proposals and objectives in the memorandum distributed August 4, sorted by category.

Jul 22 (Doc. ID 9298) AMLO Memorandum to energy regulators (English).

For the 2nd half of his six-year term (2018-24), President Andrés Manuel López Obrador has articulated the outline of a vision of how to reorient Mexico’s energy sector. He discerns that Mexico’s national interest is best served when the government-owned oil and power companies are repositioned, center-stage, in their respective markets. In an event held in the National Palace on July 22, 2020, at which the leadership cadres of public institutions in the energy sector were in attendance, the president called on the energy regulators to opine—yes or no—as to the enforceability of his 17-point energy program within the existing constitutional, legal, and regulatory frameworks.

With the collaboration of GlobalSpeak Translations, a Houston-based firm focused on the energy sector, we prepared a translation into English of the president’s vision of an energy program and his special requests to energy regulators.

The translation is available via download in exchange for a donation.
