The Dos Bocas Refinery is a ‘monument to corruption’: Xóchitl Gálvez

On Monday, April 1st, presidential candidate Xóchitl Gálvez described the “Olmeca” refinery in Dos Bocas, a priority work of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, as “a monument to corruption.”

“You spend 240,000 million (pesos) more and well, you say (…) ‘it is already refining, generating wealth’, no, it doesn’t have until now,” warned the presidential candidate of the opposition coalition Fuerza y Corazón Por México at an event proselytizer in Veracruz.

Thus, she assured that “more investments” are needed to make the refinery operational, since “there is no way to get the gasoline out,” due to “poor planning” of the project since the beginning, which she classified as a “monument to corruption.”

“As much as they have wanted to hide the real value, thanks to the reports that have been given to the stock exchanges in the United States, today we know for a fact that Dos Bocas has cost more than 20 billion US dollars, 400 billion Mexican pesos,” she said.

Xóchitl Gálvez accused the Morena candidate for governor of Veracruz, Rocío Nahle, of “irregular actions” to benefit those around her while she was Secretary of Energy between 2018 and 2023.

Specifically, she pointed out that the “first contract” was awarded to Nahle’s “Compadre”: “It was a 5 billion pesos contract granted to a company that was founded a week before. “This situation needs to be investigated,” Galvez underlined.

For Xóchitl Gálvez, these acts “represent the corruption, hypocrisy and ineptitude” of the ruling party.

“It is obvious that this refinery has a series of technical problems because it is not just finishing the construction work, (…) We know that setting up a refinery in the entire monitoring and control process is something very complex,” she explained.

At the beginning of March, the opposition promised to investigate the alleged corruption in this infrastructure and find out why it has not been completed yet, and when it will be fully operational.
