 "The Central America Energy Sector:

O&G and Electricity Markets and Investment Opportunities"

In Central America the energy sector, mainly the electricity subsector, has grown strong and dynamic mainly due to the following factors: changes in regulatory frameworks and the existence of a regional electricity market or MER. On the other hand, even though the O&G subsector is interesting and offers important opportunities (mainly upstream), reserves are only found in Guatemala due to its closeness to important Mexican O&G reservoirs. This presentation explains, in a broad sense, Central America’s energy sector characteristics and its potential for profitable investments. - 1 PDH
