17 May, 2018

PPI attended the conference “Opportunities in Mexico’s Energy Sector” in an official business trip of the Oil & Gas sector organized by the United Kingdom Embassy in Mexico.

Salvador Escobedo, President and CEO of PPI, highlighted the value of PEMEX in the world, both financially and for its production capacity, underlining the role of the company in the global energy industry, from the capitalization of the Energy Reform, which has allowed to create new associations and upgrade their operation.

Our CEO also explained in detail the mechanisms of doing business with Pemex. On the one hand, as a Partner, through associations (better known as farmouts), which allow PEMEX to complement its operational capabilities and share financial, technological and geological risks, in order to stabilize its production and gradually increase it.

The second mechanism is to become a PEMEX Supplier. Heriberto Sillas, Vice President of Alliance with Suppliers, explained the benefits and the mechanism of completing the Supplier register in the Comprehensive Supplier Information Instrument (HIIP, for its initials in Spanish), detailing the requirements of the Basic and Extended Registries, which give visibility to the contracting areas of Pemex. He also made the emphasis on the importance of obtaining the registration to participate in the contracting procedures of PEMEX.

The PPI delegation had the opportunity to attend meetings in Aberdeen, the “oil capital of Europe”, visiting Whittacker, a company specialized in design, assembly, maintenance and repair of components for the marine and offshore industry.

They also visited the Oil & Gas Technology Center, an initiative funded by the Scottish Government, English and the city of Aberdeen to promote growth, competitiveness, connectivity, infrastructure and employment in the City of Aberdeen, through research and Technology development for the Oil & Gas industry.

We were also invited to visit the Oil & Gas Center of the Robert Gordon University and the Wood company, leader

in the development of projects, technical and engineering services for the industrial and energy sector.

The visit ended with several meetings with potential suppliers, to whom we explained how PPI carries out the international procurement process, seeking the best terms and conditions for the benefit of PEMEX.
