New drafts to regulate the negotiation of land rigths in the hydrocarbons sector available for open consultation
The New Regulations interplay with one another with a twofold purpose: on the one hand, to complete regulation on land use and occupation pending since the 2013 Energy Reform; and on the other, to reform pre-existing regulations on the subject matter.
Interested parties may comment the drafts. It is important to note that the regulatory improvement procedure must be cleared by the Ministry of Agrarian, Territorial and Urban Development (Secretaría de Desarrollo Agrario, Territorial y Urbano, “SEDATU”) prior to publish the New Regulations in the Official Gazette of the Federation (“DOF” per its acronym in Spanish). These regulations will only come into effect once they are published in the DOF.
