Mexico's Pajaritos oil port reopened to shipping on Tuesday because of improved weather, but high seas kept the port of Dos Bocas closed for a second straight day, said authorities.
Dos Bocas, which has been shuttered on and off for the better part of a week, was still closed on Tuesday morning as waves crested at between seven and nine feet, said the Transport Ministry.
The port, located in southeastern Tabasco state, reported winds were at 18 miles per hour.
Pajaritos, located in the Coatzacoalcos complex in eastern Veracruz state, Cayo Arcas
port in southeastern Campeche state and Salina Cruz in southern Oaxaca state were all operating normally, the Ministry added.
Dos Bocas, Pajaritos and Cayo Arcas, all located on the Gulf of Mexico side, handle the bulk of the nation's oil exports
