This year, construction of the new fuel terminal will begin.
PROGRESO — This year Pemex will build and operate a fuel storage terminal at the Progreso port in partnership with two private companies, said Arturo Carrera Saidov, Marketing Director for Energy Consulting Services Mexico.
These companies are Trafigura, from Holland, and Hidrobenz, from Mexico. Each will have 35 percent of the shares of a new company that will be created for the project, while Pemex will own the remaining 30 percent, through its subsidiary PMI Development Infrastructure, S.A. de C. V., said the interviewee.
As reported previously in The Yucatan Times, Pemex will start this year with the construction of a fuel terminal in Progreso’s port to supply gasoline, diesel and natural gas to Yucatan and Quintana Roo, through pipelines to be built simultaneously.
Shortly after that announcement, federal government officials confirmed both projects.
On January 3, Energy vice-secretary Leonardo Beltrán Rodríguez reported that the works on the terminal would start this year, while Mexico President Enrique Peña Nieto officially announced on March 18th the construction of “a large gas pipeline that will run from Progreso to Cancun.” He also said that the construction of the pipeline “will strengthen the economic dynamism that prevails in Yucatan”.
Interviewed during a recent visit to the city, Carrera Saidov said that “it has been informed that the partners of Pemex in the terminal would be Trafigura and Hidrobenz. Both companies will buy gasoline and other petroleum products in the international market to sell them exclusively to Pemex.”
Meanwhile, the state-owned Mexican company will build the new terminal at Progreso’s Port, with capacity to store 400,000 barrels of fuel.
The new terminal will include storage tank, distribution pipelines, discharge docks and areas of operation and maintenance.
Regarding the pipelines, Carrera Saidov said that they would be two and would serve to transport gasoline, fuel and natural gas. One would be 350 kilometers of length and eight inches in diameter and would go from Progreso to Cancun. The other would also leave Progreso to a point not yet defined on the Riviera Maya and would measure 250 kilometers of length with 12 inches of diameter.
