Mexico's Isthmus crude declared force majure due to poor weather conditions -Sources
Petroleumworld 11 29 2017
Mexico's national oil company Pemex has declared force majeure on the loading of Isthmus crude, two sources with knowledge of the matter said on Wednesday.
The producer informed buyers late on Tuesday the force majeure would affect cargoes loading in early December, the sources said.
Pemex has offered to replace Isthmus supplies with another Mexican crude grade, Maya, one of the sources said.
The source said force majeure on Mexican crude loadings routinely happens during winter due to poor weather conditions, usually lasting a few days.
Pemex could not be immediately reached for comment as its office is closed during Asian hours.
Four oil tankers are waiting off Dos Bocas port to load Isthmus crude, shipping data on Thomson Reuters Eikon shows.
These include supertanker Maran Ajax and three suezmax tankers Pentathlon, Suez Fuzeyya and Trinity.
