The Olmeca refinery in Dos Bocas one of the flagship works of the 4T, will not be ready to start operations in July 2023 according to a report from an internal audit of Pemex.

Despite the fact that President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO) promised that the Dos Bocas refinery start producing gasoline in July, the audit of Pemex warned that “it is not feasible” start operations on that date, since there are no advances in the critical paths of the plants that are key to their operation.

“The trend of the jobs executed for an early start was verified, determining that the start-up proposed for July 2023 is not feasible“, warns the report.

They indicated that “instrumentation and control activities were identified in the combined and delayed coking plants, which are becoming critical: calibration, assembly and connection of safety valves, transmitters, pressure and temperature elements.”

According to the Dos Bocas works program, the construction of said plants should have ended in December 2022 but this stage “is not finished yet”.

The document also notes that the investment destined for the work of the government of AMLO Until last March 31, it was 16 thousand 890 million dollars for the contracting of goods and services, which exceeds the authorized amount by 927 million dollars by the Board of Directors of Pemex (Capemex) on August 10 of last year, which was 15 thousand 963 million dollars.

In addition, the federal government has yet to contribute 13.93% of the amount initially authorized by Capemex for the Olmeca refinery, that is, 2 thousand 224 million dollars.

The Dos Bocas refinery is planned to process up to 340,000 barrels of oil per day and produce 280,000 barrels of gasoline and diesel, thus representing a key piece in President López Obrador’s strategy to achieve energy self-sufficiency in México.

Although the Secretary of Energy, Rocío Nahle, had initially said that it would start operations in December 2022, that same month AMLO promised that it would start producing fuel in July of this year, a date that apparently will also have to be postponed.
