Mexico's Pemex Restarts Crude Exports from Salina Cruz Terminal

Reuters, October 10, 2017

Mexican state oil company Pemex aims to finalize the first shipment of crude oil for export later on Monday since restarting operations at its Salina Cruz terminal in southwest Mexico, a company official said on Monday. The first shipment from the Salina Cruz terminal would be Maya crude for export to the west coast of the United States, said the official, who was not authorized to speak publicly. The information from the official confirmed Reuters data tracking oil tanker movements around the Salina Cruz terminal, where operations were put on hold following a massive earthquake off the southwestern coast of Mexico on Sept. 7. Salina Cruz is also the site of Mexico’s biggest refinery. Pemex has said it expects refining operations to begin again at Salina Cruz in the third week of October.
