The decline in oil prices, has combined with a shift away from populist politics, to configure a new scenario for the energy industry in Latin America. Most countries are reopening their oil industry and offering more attractive terms to foreign companies. Is this trend going to last? Mexico, the country with the most important liberalization program, could offer the first resiliency test if Lopez Obrador wins the presidency, while Venezuela's possible transition could lead to the most relevant opening in the world.
