Reliance, Pemex may build refinery in Mexico

Mumbai: Indian energy major Reliance Industries and Mexican state-run oil giant Pemex may soon join hands to develop a greenfield refinery in Mexico, the Economic Times reported on Monday.

The refinery, which will have a capacity of 300,000 barrels a day, will largely meet the energy requirements of Mexico, the newspaper said, without citing any sources.

Officials at Reliance and Pemex could not immediately be reached by Reuters for comment.

The Economic Times cited Mexico’s energy secretary, Georgina Kessel, as saying a team of senior Mexican government officials would visit Reliance’s refineries at Jamnagar on India’s west coast.
