Mexico State Oil

I read a piece that Mexico state oil was planning on importing more lights and reducing sour exports, refining it's own products.

Mexican sour has had a big market in the US, especially since shale revolution.

Does anyone have any opinion on how this effects US crude?

It's worth noting that a large % of US net import reduction comes from finished products.

Open topic, really just trying to get my head around the change.

I did have a quick look, I read quite a bit of news from multiple sources.

The thrust of the article was that Pemex were going to miss production targets and that they were switching to downstream. Exporting less, importing more Lights and refining themselves.

I am not sure how important that would be to the US industry, but they are net exporter of finished products to Mexico.

PEMEX, the national oil state company is planning to import around 100K barrels of lights in order to relaunch the local refinning production. Import of gasolines is increasing dramatically
