Background

In 2015, Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) selected Enel and Abengoa to build a 517-MW cogeneration plant in Salina Cruz, Oaxaca, Mexico for the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE).[5] The plant would be built at the Antonio Dovalí Jaime refinery and provide power to the refinery.[6] "Preliminary engineering work" began in February 2016.[7]

In March 2016, Abengoa dissolved the partnership with Enel.[8]

In 2018, Pemex liquidated its subsidiary Pemex Cogeneration and Services, which was dedicated to generating and commercializing electrical and thermal energy.[9]

In 2019, Mexico's Ministry of Energy said that CFE planned to build an 800-MW plant at the refinery that would power more than just the refinery.[10] In 2021 and 2022, the Salina Cruz co-generation plant continued to be mentioned as an active project, though the exact capacity and start-up date remained uncertain.[11][12]
