The country is analyzing different markets to diversify its oil exports. The instability of its commercial relations with the United States and the production increase inthat country, have forced a strategy of markets diversification.
Pemex tanker trucks, which distribute fuel and diesel to the more than 11 thousand gas stations in the country, could be replaced by private transportation since they offer almost twice as much transport capacity than the NOC.
As a result of the permits granted by the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) during the last two years, for the first time, Pemex will receive imported diesel via rail.
Even though fuel theft is still one of Pemex’s biggest problems, Mexican authorities and Pemex’s personnel are acting to stop it. So far, Easter week operations were successful and led to the seizure of more than one thousand liters of illegal fuel.
