Memorandum of Understanding signed in Mexico

Aberdeen has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Villahermosa City and the state of Tabasco in Mexico.

In a ceremony hosted by Gerardo Gaudiano Rovirosa, Mayor of Villahermosa, the three-year agreement was completed yesterday (28 March).

The MoU identifies how both cities can work together to support common goals and objectives, with a particular focus on the energy industry and shared role as World Energy Cities.

Aberdeen is expected to benefit due to increasing opportunities within Mexico’s oil and gas industry, particularly within the hydrocarbon sector, with north-east companies well placed to offer technology and expertise that can fill gaps which have been identified. Subsea technology, drilling services and efficiencies are key areas.

Representatives from Aberdeen are meeting with various oil and gas operators and engineering contractors as well as training companies. The visit has been timed to coincide with the Petroleum Exhibition and Conference of Mexico (PECOM).
