Severe weather closes all of Mexico's oil and petrochem ports to shipping

03-Jan-12
All of Mexico's oil and petrochemical ports were closed to shipping on the first day of the year on account of severe weather, the Ministry of Communications and Transportation reported in Platts. Winds of up to 70 kph and 10-foot waves were whipped up by a seasonal cold front that swept the Gulf of Mexico, forcing the closure of the key crude-loading ports of Dos Bocas, Cayo Arcas and Pajaritos, as well as the petrochemicals port of Altamira. Pajaritos ships petrochemicals in addition to crude. Salina Cruz, the only oil port on Mexico's Pacific Coast, was also closed as the stormy conditions swept over the Isthmus of Tehuantepec between the Gulf and the Pacific.
