…and they lost half their value. The reserves suffered a loss of almost US$218.8bn in value due to the decline of oil prices and the reduced volume of reserves (Spanish). The economic value of the proved oil reserves was US$429.1bn in 2015.

 

Aura Solar has been off for 20 months. Mexico’s biggest solar energy park, located in La Paz, Baja California Sur, has not operated since September 2014 after suffering damages from hurricane Odile (Spanish). The hurricane affected 132,000 photovoltaic panels and it is not known if the plant can generate power again.

 

Energy reform was bad news for mining companies. The reform has delayed  41% of mining licenses (Spanish). Before the reform, obtaining a license took 120 days, nowadays it takes 170 days because the Economy Ministry’s mining coordinator must request information from the Energy Ministry about oil and gas reserves on mining lands.

 

Oil pipelines operating at full capacity. The storage and transportation infrastructure of LP gas and gasoline is maxed out from Guadalajara and Zacatecas to Oaxaca and Veracruz. The infrastructure can only hold inventories to cover two days of demand and operates at 90% of pipeline capacity (Spanish).

 

Campeche suffers Pemex’s crisis. In Campeche, the critical financial situation of the state-owned company has resulted in 11,000 jobs lost, businesses closed, and a drop in investments (Spanish). The Finance Ministry announced incentives and tax exemptions for Campeche and Tabasco to reactivate the states’ economies (Spanish).

 

Ejidatarios blocked the Tula pipeline. Four communities of Atotonilco de Tula, Hidalgo, oppose construction of the pipeline which will supply the CFE’s Francisco Pérez Ríos plant, delaying it for seven months. The pipeline is 15km long and lacks less than a kilometer to be completed (Spanish).

 

CFE consumed more fuel oil; Pemex is to blame. Although the CFE promised to reduce its use of fuel oil by 90%, its consumption doubled to almost 600 MMcf in  the first quarter (Spanish). This is due to interruptions in Pemex’s gas supply caused by reduced production following industrial accidents (Spanish).

New competitors in the energy business: Mexican cartels. Organized crime groups worldwide have diversified their activities to include the illegal sale of cultural goods, human organs, and even gold, according to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (Spanish). For Mexican cartels, the preferred options are oil and gold.

 

Risky business: fracking in the Tampico region. The Tampico-Misantla region concentrates 57.8% of the hydrocarbons fields in the country. The study, “Hydraulic fracking in the northern mountains of Puebla”, points out the risks the technique could cause for public health in 13 municipalities in the area (Spanish).

 

Pemex’s losses skyrocketed… In 2015, the state-owned company lost MXN712.5bn, according to the report delivered to the Senate. The value of assets decreased by 73.4% compared with 2014, due to lower oil prices and higher sales costs (Spanish).

 

…and so did CFE’s debt. Last year, the company’s total debt rose to MXN432.4bn, an 18% increase from 2014, according to the annual report submitted to the Senate. The CFE reported its documented debt and debt financed by the private sector totaled MXN281.8bn, a 13% increase over the previous year (Spanish).

The CFE suffered a MXN20.2bn blow. In the first quarter, the state-owned company announced MXN20.2bn in losses, 24% more than in the same period last year. According to the CFE, the difference is explained by lower tariffs and weaker sales which were MXN2.2bn less than in 2015 (Spanish).

 

The lack of maintenance in Pemex’s pipelines endangers Tabasco’s population. The state-owned company has failed to give corrective and preventive maintenance to almost 2,000 km of pipelines in the state averaging 29 years of age (Spanish). According to a local congressman, that explains the frequent accidents causing human casualties and environmental degradation.

 

Scarce resources translate into reduced infrastructure maintenance. Pemex Exploration and Production (PEP) has suffered a 69.5% cut in the budget for maintaining production infrastructure between 2012 and 2016 (Spanish). The company is working to conclude a study to identify and evaluate risk factors for workers in six refineries.

 

The families of the Pemex Tower victims were compensated. Three years after the accident, the three Copicosa contract workers were granted treatment equal to that of Pemex employees who also died in the explosion. The Federal Court ruled that Pemex must offer a public apology and compensate each family with MXN10m (Spanish).

Follow up: deaths in Pajaritos explosion reach 32…Pemex reported that the number of workers killed rose to 32, of whom 26 have been identified (Spanish). Six people remain missing, and the Finance Minister announced the federal government will provide support to the families of the victims (Spanish).

 

…and Mexichem’s production got hit too. The Pajaritos petrochemical plant will stop vinyl chain production for up to one year, causing losses of MXN1.6bn for Pemex and Mexichem and reducing the availability of PVC in the country (Spanish). Mexichem shares suffered their biggest three-day slide since January 2015, falling 8.1% after the explosion (English).

 

Mexichem seems to be accident prone. The number of accidents at Mexichem plants worldwide during this decade are double the corresponding figures for Pemex (Spanish). Sustainability reports of both firms indicate that Mexichem had 1.2 accidents per million man-hours worked between 2011 and 2014, while Pemex had 0.52 mishaps per million man-hours.

 

Wind farm financing in Juchitán is in trouble. The PGGM pension fund of the Netherlands withdrew its 250 million Euro investment for the wind project in the Isthmus. The reason is that after four years of delays nothing has come of the project and it will not be profitable enough (Spanish).

A Pemex petrochemical complex exploded. The explosion at the Pajaritos Petrochemical Complex in Veracruz left at least 24 dead, 136 injured (13 of them seriously), and triggered the evacuation of more than 2,000 people (Spanish) (Spanish). The cause of the blast at the chloroethene plant, which produced a toxic cloud, was a leak (English).

 

Pemex still owes 1,560 companies. The state-owned company owes MXN110bn to 1,560 suppliers and contractors (Spanish). According to the company’s Corporate Finance Division,  most of the liabilities accumulated since 2009 are related to Pemex’s health services and payments due to institutions as Bankers’ and Industrialists’ clubs.

 

Mexico joined the talks about an oil production freeze, but they collapsed. Saudi Arabia and Iran disagreed over the production freeze, causing the negotiations to collapse (English). Mexico joined 17 other nations for separate discussions aimed at freezing production at January levels to stabilize prices (English).

 

Dirty gasoline in dirty pipelines. According to the Mexican Institute for Competitiveness, gasolines sold by Pemex in Mexico have up to three times  more sulfur than those sold  in the US (Spanish). The Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE) is developing regulations for the quality of gasoline and standards of cleanliness for pipelines to prevent contamination of fuel.

Pemex was fined over pollution again… The National Agency of Industrial Security and Environmental Protection (ASEA) fined the state-owned company MXN2.5m for polluting the air of Salamanca (Spanish). State Governor  Miguel Márquez announced that Pemex will keep on being penalized for the refinery’s emissions in Guanajuato (Spanish).

 

…and is under scrutiny over layoffs.  More than 4,300 former workers filed suits  against Pemex with the Labor Ministry (Spanish). Pemex is trying to resolve the claims quickly to avoid payments in the millions as happened in previous years. Between 2011 and 2014, the state-owned company paid MXN127m to fired workers.

 

If steel goes up, so do Pemex’s expenses. Mexican official restrictions on steel imports will affect the delivery schedule and costs of construction in projects of the state-owned company. Pemex and CFE will have to pay 70% more for steel products due to the certification of origin required by the Economy Ministry (Spanish).

 

More headaches for Lozoya. When Lozoya was Pemex’s CEO, his father allegedly bought a flat worth MXN28.4m from a shareholder of Grupo Hidrosina, Mexico’s biggest gas station operator, creating a possible conflict of interest for the former Pemex chief (Spanish). Lozoya’s father denies the acquisition (Spanish).

Former Pemex CEO is named in the Panama Papers. Emilio Lozoya Austin, former director of the state-owned company, denies any link with the Mossack Fonseca law firm, which created a significant number of economic transactions to help individuals avoid taxes (Spanish). Lozoya appears in a 2011 document expressing interest in creating a company (English).

 

Sonora fears LP gas plant construction… Fourteen communities remain on alert because of the construction of a Windstar gas distribution plant with a capacity to store 2.5 million liters of LP gas. There are irregularities in the permits for the plant and it is considered a time bomb (Spanish).

 

…and a community still opposes a natural gas pipeline. Loma de Bácum is the only holdout among the eight Yaqui communities that will be affected by construction of a pipeline crossing their territory (Spanish). In fifteen days a definitive resolution will be published. Progress on the pipeline has reached 90%.

 

Engineers have been hit hard by the oil crises. The 500,000 jobs expected to be created by the energy reform are on hold and engineers face continuous layoffs due to the international oil crisis (Spanish). Companies in Campeche, Tabasco, Tamaulipas, and Veracruz states have fired personnel after Pemex suspended projects and stopped contracting general services.

A fake enquiry for Las Cruces hydro-electric plant. The CFE intends to use the Kinto Sol association for simulating a consultation process with the indigenous communities that would be affected by construction of the Las Cruces hydro-electrical plant in Nayarit. This project will dam up the San Pedro Mezquital river (Spanish).

Radioactive materials lacking oversight. Mexico has experienced eight robberies of radioactive medical materials in the last two years, as radiological services are not too careful managing these substances.  One incident roughly every three months illustrates the lack of control over this type of potentially toxic materials (Spanish).

…and wells with radioactive water affect six states. The polluted wells have caused the death of three girls and two adults, according to a senator. The concentration of arsenic and fluoride in the Lerma-Chapala aquifer and in underground water doubled in the last 14 years (Spanish).

Everybody ignored peak hour. Zero offers were made for peak hour in the Wholesale Electricity Market (MEM) because the price was thought too low:  8,000 to 10,000 pesos per MW/h for the next 20 years (Spanish). Companies must offer some power for peak nighttime hours, a challenge for solar plants that are 56% of MEM winners.

Gulf Coast cities suffer with oil slump. Hoteliers, restaurateurs, truckers, builders, and airlines operating in Campeche, Tabasco, and Veracruz face an economic crisis following the cancellation of several contracts between Pemex and engineering firms responsible for coastal projects (Spanish). Jobs for employees and businessmen in the coastal oil region will also collapse.

Pemex vs Mancera over Tula’s pollution. Mexico City mayor Miguel Ángel Mancera called emissions from the Pemex Tula refinery “highly polluting” and said the gases make tightened restrictions on circulation of automobiles inadequate for controlling the capital’s pollution emergency. Pemex denies the accusation and declares its second largest refinery meets environmental standards (Spanish).

Pemex plans to abandon platforms. As part of its budget cutting, Pemex will eliminate 66% of its contracts for platforms, principally drilling rigs (Spanish). Pemex Exploration and Production (PEP) started the year with 30 contracts, and will cancel most of them by September, leaving only 10 platforms active.

Not much to celebrate at the Oil Expropriation Anniversary. Today, 78 years after seizing the oil fields, Pemex is saddled with a heavy debt burden, massive losses, a continuing decline in oil and gas production, and an increasing dependency on foreign imports. The company today depends on capitalization from the state (Spanish).

Illegal fuel taps generate profits in the billions. Pemex’s legal director reported the value of fuel stolen from pipelines exceeds MXN21bn annually. Complaints filed rose from 3,267 in 2012 to 6,898 in 2015, and application of new laws has led to more than 600 sentences and the detention of 1,400 people (Spanish).

 

Fishermen’s cooperatives reject wind farm in Oaxaca. More than 220 members of three fishing cooperatives protested against the Eólica Zapoteca project, run by a leader of the PRI party in the region. The fishermen oppose the farm because the red lights of the wind turbines affect fishing (Spanish).

 

Follow up: Pemex will end controversial airplane rental. The Pemex CEO testified in Congress that the contract for overpriced leasing of airplanes is being canceled. The airplanes were allegedly used for personal purposes by the former CEO in violation of an agreement with the National Defense Ministry regulating their use (Spanish).

 

Pemex keeps burning gas. The state-owned company closed 2015 with daily natural gas waste of 427Mcf, equivalent to 7.8% of last year’s total gas production (Spanish). Flaring or venting of gas doubled in 2015 compared to 242Mcf/D in 2014.

Pemex’s health care costs are unhealthy for its budget. For 2015, Congress approved health coverage spending of 41,591 pesos for each of the state-owned company’s 287,304 workers, while social security allocated 17,844 pesos per worker (Spanish). In 2016, the amount of Pemex health payments will increase to 49,285 pesos per worker.

 

…and some workers enjoy double pension payments. According to the Superior Federal Auditor (ASF), 68,388 former employees the Mexican Institute of Social Security (IMSS), the Security and Social Services of the State Workers (ISSTE), and a minority from Pemex are receiving two pensions: one from their ex employers and another from the Senior Citizens Pension, a social program (Spanish).

 

Pemex got a bad rental deal. The director of the state-owned company appeared before Congress to explain contracts of his predecessor totaling  MXN4.8bn in overpriced rented trucks and MXN2.4bn for three planes and a helicopter (Spanish) (Spanish) (English). Under the former director, the number of highly paid senior management positions tripled (Spanish).

 

Follow up: radioactive material found after all. The container holding Iridium 192 stolen in central Mexico was found in the state of Mexico, according to the Civil Protection service (English). The container holding the radioactive material was still sealed, so no risk was ever posed to human health (Spanish).
