Pemex Chief:Watching Mkt to Decide When to Begin Crude Imports
MEXICO CITY (MNI) - Mexico's state oil company Pemex will begin importing crude oil for the first time in decades after watching the markets for the best moment to buy, Pemex Director General Juan Jose Suarez said Tuesday.

Suarez told local radio that Pemex is concluding the analysis of how different mixtures on the market react in the country's refineries, and will wait for an opportunity to buy, making the plan seem much more definite than it did only a day earlier.

...

He said it is not a question of having enough domestic crude, since output has remained steady at 2.59 million bpd this year from 2.6 million bpd last year, but mixing the lighter imported crude rich in gasoline together with Mexico's heavier grade crude, the refinery process will be more profitable, Suarez said.

"Our type of crude has changed for some time because we stopped producing what we used to produce in Cantarell," Suarez said, refering to the nation's huge aging oil field. "Our refining system produces less gasoline with our crude."

7. The intersting thing is, there *has* been a kind of big fuel conservation effort --
which we mostly call by its other name -- The Great Recession.
