Mexico has for the first time in its history an ecosystem in which, besides from PEMEX, there is a great number of companies dedicated to upstream activities, supply chain and specialized infrastructure for the O&G sector. This new ecosystem has shown to the Mexican market that it is often better to create an environment of cooperation, instead of having a competition that could damage the stability, development and permanence of the industry.

For this reason, both industry regulators and operators need to collaborate with each other in a way that allows them to develop their objectives together. An example of this process is the fact that the CNH has taken into consideration the opinion and nomination of blocks by the companies, to include several areas of interest in the bidding rounds.
