Here is Argus update Pemex Refinery & Coker Expansion and earlier update Reuters June 2011.
I hadn’t seen anything since June 20 update. Earlier articles mentioned the gasoline prod units have been online for several months. As I understand Coker & Alky+other Gasoline units were operational in March 2011 (had been delayed from July-Aug 2010 startup).
Previous articles also mentioned that total expansion for Minatitlan was originally (2003) to 350 MBD and this round expansion only ups it to 246 MBD. But the conversion to 2/3 Maya heavy crude instead light crude; plus a reduction from 65 MBD Fuel oil to only 27 MBD fuel oil; as well as increase in 47 MBD (to new total 93 MBD) of gasoline product was accomplished
Another item in previous updates was status on Pemex newTula Refinery & coker expansion / new plant addition.
