Ongoing Projects

  • The refinery is adding catalytic gasoline desulfurization plants, amine regeneration units, offsites, and utilities.

Other Information

  • The refinery was upgraded between 1999 & 2002. The modernization was designed to substantially reduce air and liquid emissions and surface water consumption at the refinery. It also helped satisfy growing regional demand for unleaded gasoline to meet Mexican environmental regulations, assisted Mexico's electric utilities in shifting consumption from high sulfur fuel oil to natural gas, increased light fuel production while reducing heavy fuel oil production, and expanded refining capacity. The project was supported by EX-IM bank.
