Does the Hydrocarbon Law offer the equivalent of a U.S. mineral lease?
In this report, we ask a difficult question: do Mexico's hydrocarbon laws provide the equivalent of a U.S. minerals lease for oil and gas? To answer this question, we first examined the terms and concepts in Mexico's Mineral Law, where the legal figure of concession exists. We then considered the nature of a U.S. mineral lease.
This is a comprehensive report that includes discussion and observations.
