Pemex Shuts Two Crude Export Terminals Due to Bad Weather
The port Coatzacoalcos remained open, the Merchant Marine, an agency of Mexico’s Communications and Transportation Ministry, said in a report published on its website.
Cayo Arcas is the Mexico City-based company’s largest export terminal, followed by Coatzacoalcos and Dos Bocas.
Pemex, as the state-owened company is known, is the third- largest supplier of oil to the U.S., exported about 1.3 million barrels of crude a day in December. About 84 percent of Mexican crude exports is sold to the U.S., according to statistics from Mexico City-based Pemex. Canada is the largest supplier of crude to the U.S followed by Saudi Arabia.
