Oil Product Storage Facilities – Clean Product Storage Terminals
- Lexington Midstream is a Mexican Energy company focused on developing and constructing Hydrocarbon Storage Terminals at multiple sites within Mexico.
- Phase 1 encompasses four separate terminal locations, three of which are fully permitted, and one is expected to be permitted shortly. Phase 1 requires approximately $42 MM in equity. Total equity requirements for all terminals is estimated to be approximately $100 MM.
- The company has secured strong partnerships with U.S. refineries and trading companies to achieve the most competitive prices. These partnerships cover all the key aspects of the supply chain, from refining to transportation, importation and delivery.
- Over the next four years, Lexington plans to develop ten storage terminals in Mexico, file for its own Import and Trading Licenses, and provide development equity for other projects to have a continuous pipeline of projects. Lexington’s new terminals will increase Mexico’s storage capacity from the current 2-3 days to a longer, strategic and safer period.
- This Map shows the existing Midstream and Storage infrastructure in Mexico which are mostly owned by Pemex.
- The network was designed mostly to connect Pemex refineries to demand centers through pipelines and maritime transport.
- Given the rise of demand, in the transportation industry coupled with the current situation of the refineries, local supply of refined products is tight.
- The existing 77 Pemex storage and distribution facilities had less than 3 days of gasoline & diesel demand covered by 2018. By comparison, the U.S currently has an average of about 25 days of gasoline demand on hand.
