Mexico's transmission network is under pressure due to the rapid expansion of the country's generation fleet. Since 2000, the country's generation capacity has doubled to over 73,000 MW, according to SENER.
Even more, Mexico is expected to add 7 GW of new generation worth $8.6 billion as a result of its first three long-term electricity auctions, and install an additional 55.8 GW of generation capacity worth $97 billion by 2031. Of this, 63% of the new capacity will be renewable generation.
The increase in the number of clean energy plants - such as gas, combined cycle, wind, and solar - added to the growing current electricity demand requires a transmission extension of the electric grid, with the northeastern, northern, northwestern and southeastern transmission systems most vulnerable to becoming saturated.
But these are long distances. For cable connections beyond 40 km, HVDC is likely to be the only technical solution because of the high charging current of an AC cable, and proven solutions are needed.
Solving these bottlenecks will decrease long-term uncertainties for the development of new generation projects in these regions, strengthen the national grid, and reduce the cost of electricity to improve the competitiveness of local industry.
It is time for Mexico to transition to a 21st-century electric power system. HVDC technology will be at the forefront of solutions for this.
Join the 2nd annual HVDC Energy Highways 2018 Mexico conference this October 24, 2018 in Mexico City, Mexico and reveal the best practices that specifically fit Mexico’s context to design, finance, build, and operate HVDC transmission systems!

As you know, making subsea systems work in deepwater developments is not easy — such as at BP’s Atlantis, Na Kika, Thunder Horse and Mad Dog platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.
Any subsequent requirements to repair or intervene with installed subsea equipment can be expensive to the tune of $50 million or more, and unscheduled expenses of this magnitude can result in the economic failure of subsea projects.
Any subsea engineer can avoid expensive guesswork from extending asset life and developing stranded fields cost-effectively by attending Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference because you will gain insights tried-and-tested solutions globally.
This year, Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference highlights best practices and solutions in end-to-end subsea processing that are now being considered standard, tested and tried to save you millions of dollars from costly mistakes, that all of us cannot afford!
Conference Details: Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference
Theme: Standards for high reliability and short turnaround intervention
Date: April 12-13, 2018 | Venue: Windsor Barra Hotel Rio de Janeiro

18 December 2018 (RIO DE JANEIRO). Brazil is back in the game, and Brazil’s priorities will be to start production from the existing discoveries and increase production from established wells.
With the success of Brazil's pre-salt giant Libra oil field producing first oil whilst spearheading an ambitious license round schedule comprising of up to 10 bid rounds within the next 3 years and permanent offer in a total of 846 exploration blocks in 13 different sedimentary basins, new technology is critical to maintaining growth. And the secret to Brazil’s deepwater success is subsea multiphase boosting innovation.
"According to our research, subsea processing and separation are very attractive for many folks, after all subsea systems were born in Brazil. If one looks at all the fields, all the wells will produce less, yet recovery can be increased through subsea works. The pre-salt resources in Brazil and offshore around the Golden Triangle require these services in abundance. Petrobras itself forecast $1.5 billion dollars of demand for subsea trees,” says Mr Rex Sayson, Research Director at the Center for Energy Sustainability and Economics.
"What we hear is that recovery rates now are at about 30 per cent. Increasing this to 45-50 per cent would be a huge opportunity. Pumping and power are the key areas to make this happen. Linking subsea wells has been shown to make pressure management easier.” It is important for solution providers to differentiate their technology, because in this game, only the most innovative and relevant will survive.
The Subsea Multiphase Boosting 2018 Brazil Conference (April 12-13, 2018, Windsor Barra Hotel & Congressos, Rio de Janeiro) is very timely to help flow assurance and production experts address this challenge, with the latest state-of-the-art technologies and lessons learned for boosting production whilst reducing intervention turnaround time and extraction cost as subsea development water depths and step-out lengths increase.
"As oil approaches $65 a barrel, the global subsea pumps and multiphase market will grow 11.3% culminating to $1.7 billion in 2020. Brazil, West Africa, and Mozambique regions will drive the momentum from increasing utilization of subsea boosting for oil production," says Mr Sayson. “There’s only room for a few players, and the most relevant and fit will dominate the Brazil deepwater market.”
"Increasing business development will drive growth across the sector. The Brazilian opportunity for everyone is very real - the resource is there, and it can be developed. But nothing is guaranteed, which is why it is important for everyone who is serious about staying in the oil and gas business to stay alert to operators’ developing needs offshore Brazil and offshore South America.”
