Meet Our Team at the Expo

The Oklahoma Global Team will be at the Oil & Gas Expo. Visit us at booth 221. The Global Team at the Oklahoma Department of Commerce offers trade and export assistance to Oklahoma companies interested in selling their products and services in the global marketplace.

Exporting to Mexico is particularly important for Oklahoma oil and gas companies. The southern market offers impressive opportunities as a result of the opening of the oil, gas and electric power sectors to private investment under the Mexico energy reform. It is a booming market where new operators in both upstream and midstream as well as conventional and renewable energies are fast deploying new infrastructure to take advantage of the recently opened market.

Commerce maintains a trade office in Mexico that is dedicated to analyzing companies’ readiness to export.
