At a meeting today in Aberdeen, the head of the UK’s subsea industry body, Neil Gordon, and the UK prime minsister's trade envoy envoy to Mexico, Baroness Bonham Carter, highlighted the technical similarities between subsea operations in the North Sea and off the coast of Mexico.

"The situation is challenging in the North Sea so it’s important for firms to consider other regions as part of their future growth strategies,” said Gordon, Subsea UK chief executive.

“Mexico is amongst the top ten largest oil producers in the world and ranked in the top 20 in terms of gas production. Over the past decade, Pemex has had a lack of investment in technology development; UK subsea firms could now play a major role helping to extract much of Mexico’s remaining oil wealth, thought to lie thousands of metres below the seabed.
