Pemex and SSA Mexico to explore potential of an oil terminal at Tuxpan

State oil company Pemex and fellow-Mexican firm SSA Mexico, which operates ports, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to look into possibly developing oil port facilities at the Port of Tuxpan in the state of Veracruz.

CEO of Pemex, Jose Antonio Gonzalez Anaya, and the president of SSA Mexico, Fernando Chico Pardi were honorary witnesses of the signing.

Initially the plan is to analyse if SSA, a subsidiary of Carrix, could adapt one of its anchoring positions to receive oil and petrol products.

The parties would also explore the feasibility of building a terminal with two fixed anchoring positions.

A work plan for these potential projects, including cost analysis, is expected to take two months.
