About

Take a look into our past and our plans for the future.

MMEX Resources Corporation (“MMEX”) is a publicly held corporation, with its principal operating office in Texas. The business plan of MMEX focuses on the acquisition, development, and financing of oil, gas, refining, and electric power projects in Texas, Peru, and other countries in Latin America using the expertise of our principals to identify, finance and acquire these projects.

MMEX was formed in the United States in 2010 and has common management with Maple Resources Corporation (“Maple Resources”), which was formed in the United States in 1986. Maple Resources engaged in a number of oil and gas acquisitions and divestitures and ultimately acquired assets that included 10 gas processing plants and approximately 770 miles of natural gas gathering lines and transmission infrastructure. In 1992, Maple Resources sold substantially all of its U.S.-based assets and began to pursue energy projects in Latin America.
