They are designed to protect the environment and Mexicans’ health, he said.
These investments PEMEX will make, in conjunction with the private sector, are
proof that, as the president noted during his speech at COP21, Mexico will
continue to grow economically, creating greater development, and will be able
to do while caring for and respecting our environment.
The investments announced will allow the creation of 63,000 jobs, he said.
The president announced the project for the restructuring and modernization of
the CFE Technological Museum into what will be the new National Museum of
Energy and Technology (MUNET).
today President Enrique Peña Nieto announced the investment projects to be
carried out by Petroleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) in the next three years for $23
billion USD to produce cleaner fuels, among other actions.
are green investments, investments to protect the environment and Mexicans’
health,” he said.
President explained that these investments, which will involve private sector
participation, will permit the production of Ultra Low Sulfur Gasoline and
Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel. It will also enable Waste Use in three refineries in
National Refining System: Tula, Hidalgo; Salamanca, Guanajuato; and Salina Cruz,
Oaxaca. It will make it possible to, “Make better use of and more effectively
refine each barrel of oil that reaches these refining plants.”
we will be able to achieve greater efficiency through this reconfiguration of
the refining plants.” Investments will also allow the cogeneration of
electric power, “Which will make PEMEX the country’s second largest electricity
generator,” he said.
President Peña Nieto said that, “We will now have cleaner fuels with a lower
sulfur content, which will allow us to reduce the emission of greenhouse gases,
which pollute the environment and affect Mexicans’ health. These are new
investments for the benefit and care of Mexicans’ health.”
stressed that these investments by PEMEX are proof of that, as he noted during
his participation at the 21st Conference of Parties to the United Nations
Framework Convention on Climate Change (cop21) held in Paris, “Mexico may
continue to grow economically and generate further development and do so while
caring for and respecting our environment.”
president said that these investments have been made possible through Energy
Reform, which allows private sector investment. "Had it not been so, in this
complex, difficult global scenario, we might have had to resort to more
borrowing, or prevent PEMEX from making major investments, or it would not have
been possible to make the investments announced today,” he said.
give some idea of the scale of the investments announced, the president
explained that, it is almost twice the Mexico City government’s annual budget. This is the
scope, he continued, “Of the investment being announced today, which will allow
PEMEX to modernize and create approximately 63,000 jobs.”
Peña Nieto said that a significant part of the investment announced today will
be earmarked for the refinery in Tula: “Over 111.5 billion pesos,” which will
also create thousands of jobs in this part of Hidalgo. “It will be one of the largest
refineries in the PEMEX Refining System.”
also announced plans for the restructuring and modernization of the
Technological Museum (MUTEC) of the Federal Electricity Commission, in what
will be the new National Museum of Energy and Technology (MUNET), with the
participation of PEMEX, CFE and the private sector.
the end of the event, the president was shown the executive project of the new
MUNET, where he was given explanations by Carlos Ruiz Sacristán, President of
the MUNET Board, and Enrique Norten of TEN Arquitectos, the designer of the
executive project. The projected investment is $270 million USD.
PEMEX WILL HAVE A PROMISING 2016
AND BILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN INVESTMENTS: EMILIO LOZOYA AUSTIN
General of Pemex Emilio Lozoya Austin said that the company envisages a
promising 2016 despite current oil prices, in which it will begin a new stage
of growth and value creation.
said that investments for billions of dollars will be announced in which only
third parties will be able to participate, which is only possible through the
Energy Reform promoted by President Enrique Peña Nieto.
said that, “These investments do not involve more debt for PEMEX; on the
contrary, they involve risk investments by third parties, which combine their
incentives with those of Petróleos Mexicanos.”
Austin highlighted the achievements in 2015, such as four discoveries in
shallow waters equivalent to 350 million barrels of crude, which will mean
approximately 100,000 barrels per day of additional production and 90 million
cubic feet of gas daily.
additional shallow water yields were found with 3P reserves of approximately
180 million barrels of equivalent crude oil, in which production of 40,000
barrels per additional day is expected, together with 25 million cubic feet of
addition, in deep waters in the Perdido area, we have incorporated gas and
condensates at 350 and 170 million barrels of oil equivalent.”
mentioned that this productive firm owned by the Mexican state is being
transformed in four aspects: focus on the most profitable markets; implementation
of process management; operational excellence, and above all, a cultural change,
which, he stressed, is key and the only guarantee that the other changes that
have taken place will be consolidated, since cultural transformation involves
the transformation of each of the oil workers, he explained.
Investments in energy cogeneration, CONCRETE RESULTS OF ENERGY REFORM: CHICO
Chico Pardo, President and CEO of ENESA Energy Group, speaking with the
representatives of Cactus Consortium, comprising Grupo Carso, Grupo Mexichem
and Invenergy, said that the announcement of the PEMEX investment, “Reflects
the concrete results of Energy Reform.”
results, he added, “Are beginning to translate into investments in cogeneration
plants for over $3 billion USD, which will undoubtedly create significant job
opportunities in various parts of the country.”
said that the specific case of the Cactus cogeneration project, located in the
Municipality of Reforma in Chiapas, will involve construction of a plant with
633 megawatts generating capacity and 480 tons per hour of steam, which will
require an investment of $900 million USD and generate approximately 2,000
direct and indirect jobs.
explained that the aim is to upgrade key PEMEX industrial facilities and
improve their operating efficiencies without affecting the company's finances. Moreover, he
added, these projects complement the supply of efficient, competitive energy in
the national electricity market.
also said that these investments currently establish a total estimated capacity
of five thousand megawatts of clean energy, with significant reductions in
greenhouse gas, thereby contributing to the renewable energy commitments,
assumed by Mexico internationally.
ENERGY REFORM MAKES MEXICO more
competitive, and creates jobs, more wealth and development: OLVERA
of the State of Hidalgo Francisco Olvera Ruiz said that despite the adverse
global economic outlook, for Mexico, Energy Reform will mean a significant
transformation for Petróleos Mexicanos, and that will allow the country to be
more competitive, and create sources of jobs, more wealth and development.
said the investments will directly impact the population of the region of Tula
de Allende and the surrounding municipalities, in addition to benefitting the
said that launching the first part of the Pemex plant in Tula, which is
implementing clean fuels projects, “Is undoubtedly a concrete sign of the
commitment by Mexico and our President.”
the same time, Olvera Ruiz said that the state supports and monitors the state
vision of President Enrique Peña Nieto, whose government, he said, has yielded
concrete results in the first three results, and he hoped that the next three,
“Will be crucial to consolidating the progress of major reforms in order to
achieve the development that the country needs.”

strengthening this industry, which is, “The cornerstone of our economic and
social stability, an essential part of our future project.”
said that in order to support the current administration and everything that
lends viability to PEMEX, in conjunction with their Director General, they have
sought working arrangements that will allow them to adapt to the new reality,
without affecting oil workers’ rights, and they have built a healthy,
productive working relationship with capable human resources and fair wages.
told the president that the announcement of investments for major projects is
encouraging, since they “Show your determination to take advantage of the new
situation to expand the production expectations of PEMEX as a state
enterprise.” He confirmed
the workers’ commitment to, “Supporting everything that contributes to the
consolidation of the industry and new industries.”
