Mexico Divert Crude Exports to Refineries to End Foreign Dependence


Petroleos Mexicanos will divert crude oil to its Texas refinery instead of exporting abroad as part of a government aim to end foreign fuels dependency.

  • Energy Minister Rocio Nahle said about 700kbpd of current Pemex exports will be sent to the Deer Park refinery in Texas and the Dos Bocas refinery in Tabasco state.
  • “We have to be self-sufficient,” she said adding that the aim is to end oil exports by December 2023.

  • Nahle said that Pemex is expected to have produced about 1.62mbpd of crude in November
