Pemex to build new pipeline for imported fuel

Oct 01, 2008 02:00 AM

Petroleos Mexicanos has launched a tender for a 70,000-bpd pipeline that will mainly handle imported fuel arriving at the Tuxpan terminal on the coast of the Gulf of Mexico, the company said.
Mexico already imports more than 40 % of its gasoline and other fuels and expects this to reach 50 % in the coming years as domestic demand continues to grow.

Pemex said the pipeline project will ease transport costs at Pemex by reducing the amount of fuel it moves with tanker trucks, which is more expensive than running it through a pipeline.
Pemex said the project will cost around pesos 700 mm ($ 64 mm). Pemex officials have warned that the company needs to build new storage facilities and pipelines to handle growing volumes of imported fuel.
