Renewables & Electricity. The CRE approved 10 power generation projects; AMLO plans to convert CFE plants; and Macquarie Group bought 90% of a solar energy generation portfolio.
Natural Gas & Liquid Fuels. Pemex's Madero and Minatitlán refineries are on a break; the CRE approved fuel storage in Tamaulipas; and South Korea's refinery will be upgraded to receive Mexican Maya crude.
Oil & Gas Upstream. Fluvio Ruiz will be the head of Pemex Exploración y Producción; and a natural gas well was closed after manatees died.
Money & Power. A NAFTA agreement is “very, very close”; Perry applauds Mexico's energy plans; and the IMF recommended AMLO reduce the public debt.
Déjà vu all over again. Last week’s readers were particularly interested in CRE’s requirements for pipelines (El Financiero – Spanish); ExxonMobil’s use of Kinder Morgan’s pipeline (El Financiero – Spanish); and AMLO’s budget for the refineries (Reuters – English).
