Mexico Maya Price Rise Set to Boost Canada Exports to U.S.

Updated on

Mexico’s decision to raise the price of Maya crude is seen making Canadian crude more competitive, drawing increased volumes down to the U.S. Gulf Coast.

State-owned Petroleos Mexicanos, known as Pemex, reduced the discount for the heavy crude blend sold into the U.S. to $1.20 a barrel in April from $2.95 in March, the biggest increase in a year. U.S. imports of Canadian crude declined over the month ended March 6 as Mexico’s increased, according to U.S. Energy Department data.
