Forbes Quotes Steve Otillar on Mexican Oil Sector Reform

In its article “Mexico's Oil Reforms Set To Trigger Biggest Economic Boom In 100 Years,” Forbes quoted Akin Gump energy partner Steven Otillar on a proposed amendment to Mexico’s constitution that would open that country’s oil sector to private investors.

Regarding the long-awaited reforms advocated by President Enrique Peña Nieto, Otillar said, “Everyone had realized the problem, but nobody wanted to tackle the challenge of constitutional reform. Rather than ‘Oh my gosh how fast this is going,’ it’s more like ‘Thank God we’re finally there.’”
