Pemex in further cogeneration JV

Mexico’s state-owned oil company Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) has announced a plan to build cogeneration plants at its natural gas production facilities.  

The company has signed a memorandum of understanding with US-based Dominion Technologies to form a joint venture aimed at implementing cogen projects in Mexico.

Pemex is expected to build the power projects at various facilities for the regulation and measurement of natural gas. This will harness the energy disseminated during the process of gas expansion, the firm said.

In May, Pemex established its Cogeneration and Services division with the aim of building cogen projects to harness excess heat and steam at its industrial facilities, especially refineries.  The company has already implemented projects at several refineries.
