Pemex: Harvey Caused Crude Oil Shipment Delays

September 5, 2017

Mexican national oil company Pemex said on Tuesday that Hurricane Harvey forced the cancellation of several crude oil export shipments.
 
Due to the damage inflicted by Harvey on the U.S. Gulf coast refining center, Pemex arranged for alternative gasoline and diesel cargos from suppliers elsewhere, the company said in a statement.
 
The company also moved up maintenance plans for its Ku-Maloob-Zaap field, its biggest producer, located in shallow waters of the Bay of Campeche. The maintenance will be conducted from this week through Sept. 11, which will cause production to temporarily dip by some 330,000 barrels per day (bpd).
 
But Pemex said the maintenance plans are not expected to impact the company's production forecast for this year.
