UK Subsea Companies Head to Mexico on Showcase Mission



UK subsea companies will be heading to Mexico City, from September 26-29, on a showcase trade mission to increase business and trade opportunities in Latin America’s most promising energy hubs.

The event has been organised by the Department for International Trade (DIT) in association with Subsea UK, along with the Energy Industries Council (EIC), Aberdeen & Grampian Chamber of Commerce and Scottish Development International.

Industry body Subsea UK will lead the subsea section of the showcase which will connect more than 15 UK companies with Mexico’s most influential energy players in Mexico City, Ciudad del Carmen and Villahermosa, says Subsea UK.

Each company, whose products and services are focused on subsea technology, drilling and efficiencies or midstream capabilities, will showcase their offerings to operators, potential customers and partners and get the chance to network with government and industry officials.

As part of the UK Government’s strategy to help double British exports by 2020, Subsea UK is seeking to strengthen trade partnerships across the globe, exporting the country’s subsea expertise to increase the sector’s international capabilities and reputation.

“Following the Energy Reform in 2013, the Mexican energy sector has undergone some big changes, opening up new opportunities for UK companies to play a major role in helping to maximize the country’s oil output, exporting their wealth of skills and innovation,” said Neil Gordon, chief executive of Subsea UK.

“In December, the Mexican Government will open to tender for 10 deepwater blocks in the Gulf of Mexico. It’s crucial that UK companies take a strategic approach to market entry, making the right connections and partnerships to ensure they are in the running to be part of such a major development,” he added.
