Mexico’s Gasoline Supply Not Threatened by Storms

MEXICO CITY – State-owned Petroleos Mexicanos said on Tuesday that there will be sufficient gasoline available in Mexico despite disruptions caused by hurricanes affecting the Aztec nation and the United States.

“We already have shipments arranged to cover September and the beginning of October,” Pemex executive Carlos Murrieta told Radio Formula.

Pemex does not expect the gasoline supply to be affected as a result of Hurricanes Harvey and Katia, which affected key petroleum industry infrastructure in southeastern Texas and the Mexican Gulf coast state of Veracruz, respectively.

Mexico, though a key supplier of crude oil to the US, is heavily reliant on imports for refined fuels.

After Harvey, Pemex turned to Europe and to other US refineries to fill the gap left by the shutdown in the greater Houston area, Murrieta said.

Now, he said, most of the Texas refineries that supply gasoline to Texas “are already entering into operation,” albeit slowly.

One of Pemex’s domestic refineries, Salina Cruz in the southern state of Oaxaca, is likely to be out of commission for at least three weeks due to damage from the magnitude-8.2 earthquake that struck the area last Friday, Murrieta said.

The temblor, which is blamed for more than 90 deaths, did not damage the refinery proper, but rather the generators that provide the complex with electricity, the executive said.
