MMEX Resources Corp. has begun construction of a 10,000 bpd crude distillation unit (CDU) at the company's planned refinery in the Permian Basin.  MMEX announced its plans for a new 50,000 bpd refinery in March 2017, but has since doubled the planned capacity to 100,000 bpd. 

Located 20 miles northeast of Fort Stockton, Texas, near the Sulfur Junction spur of the Texas Pacifico Railroad, the 250-acre facility intends to utilize its connection to existing railways to export diesel, gasoline, and jet fuels, liquefied petroleum gas, and crude oil to western Mexico and South America. Once completed, the Pecos County refinery will be one of the first oil refineries built in the United States in more than 40 years.
