Can't Get You Out of My Head (Kylie Minogue) - 2001

I have Latin America and more specifically Brazil and Rio de Janeiro stuck in my mind since last week's announcement that they will be hosting the 2016 Olympics. But then I also came across an article in the September 2009 issue of Hydrocarbon Engineering entitled "Mucho Gas" which speaks to the region's natural gas sector with country-by-country analyses. Its key message: since there is no "integrated, multinational network to move gas from source to consumption point," unique challenges certainly arise including price controls and geopolitics. Nonetheless, the investment opportunities for participants near and far remain vast.

It just so happens that The Oxford Princeton Programme will be debuting its course on Overview of and Opportunites in Latin American Natural Gas (LANG) in Houston on December 2nd and 3rd 2009.

This follows immediately after another new course on Overview of and Opportunities in Latin American Crude Oil (LACO) on November 30th and December 1st also in Houston and is slated to run in Rio de Janeiro on November 12th and 13th.

With all this forthcoming activity, see why I can't get the region out of my head?
