Pemex Refinación awards TR a new project at Minatitlan refinery

Técnicas Reunidas

Técnicas Reunidas (TR) has been selected by Pemex Refinación for the execution of the ultra-low-sulfur diesel project at the General Refinery Lazaro Cardenas in Minatitlan, Mexico.

This contract includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of three new refining units: diesel hydrodesulfurization unit (30,000 bpd), hydrogen production plant (25 Mcfd) and sulfur recovery plant (150 tpd); as well as modifications to an existing hydrodesulfurization unit and the integration of the facilities beyond the battery limits for these plants.

This project is part of the development and updating plans that Pemex Refinación is carrying out, with investments of $5,500 million, within the Fuel Quality Project at their refineries throughout the country, to produce and supply diesel with a maximum sulfur content of 15 parts per million (ppm), which represents a reduction of 97% to meet environmental standards. Similarly, air quality will be improved by reducing emissions of greenhouse gases by more than 12,000 tons per year.
