OPINION: One of the best ways to ensure you get a job is to make nice with the boss. New Fortress Energy has done just that with the president of Mexico, and looks set to reap the benefits.

Last week, New Fortress — a US-based liquefied natural gas exporter — announced three different deals with Mexico’s Pemex and the state-owned electric utility CFE.

The Pemex deal will allow New Fortress to use its Fast LNG technology in the Lakach field in the deep-water Gulf of Mexico.
