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.
Pemex will apply international technologies such as “Gasoline Tracers” to eradicate fuel theft, a problem that causes losses of more than MXN$25B per year.
Energy Reform continues to produce results. Oil firms, which won contracts in round 1.3, announced investments for the next two years. The National Hydrocarbons Commission (CNH) approved their initial evaluation and development plans.
Pemex will ask interested investors and operators to make formal offers in the next weeks.
