Brazil is where the big offshore resources are, Mexico is where the government was (until recently) opening up opportunities to medium sized companies, and Venezuela is where the largest oil resources in the world are (although it is tar). Possibilities also in Colombia and Argentina. We'll review what companies are finding success in the region and how they are doing it.
