MEI 853 – Outlook for Diesel Imports

Outlook for Diesel Imports: Analysis of SENER import permits

HOUSTON —This report examines the list of more than 300 diesel import permits that had been issued by Mexico’s Energy Regulatory Commission (SENER) as of Aug. 14, 2017. The data are published by date of the permit, not alphabetically by company (Table 3) or by volume (Table 4). Pemex data for diesel production and imports since 2012 suggest that imports could rise to 350,000 b/d by 2024, an increase of 2/3rds from mid-2017.

The report asks if the many companies with permits actually intend to compete with Pemex and PMI. There is another concern that cannot be voiced at trade negotiations—and scarcely be voiced in any venue: the inherent market inefficiency of having Mexico’s State-owned Enterprises legally established as corporate agencies of the State.
