MMEX Resources Corp. has completed the third and final leg of its product sales with another international company for its planned Pecos County projects.
Jack W. Hanks, President & CEO of MMEX Resources Corp., commented: “We have now signed the agreement to sell our planned naphtha production to a SuperMajor international energy and trading company for delivery by rail to the Texas Gulf refinery and petrochemical markets. This completes 100% of our refined product sales package with gold standard companies and all three off-take agreements provide the market for our project expansion in the Permian Basin. Again, it underscores the opportunity we offer to our area oil and gas producers with other take-away capacity and, quite importantly, these agreements have allowed us to initiate negotiations for MMEX plans to build and own crude oil, IMO 2020 marine fuel and naphtha storage and terminal facilities in the Texas Gulf Coast.”
MMEX has announced plans to build a crude oil refinery complex in the Permian Basin in two phases, with Phase 1 being a 10 000 bpd crude distillation unit which is expected to produce diesel, naphtha and residual fuel oil.
Phase 2 is a full-scale crude oil refinery with capacity of up to 100 000 bpd, projected to produce a full slate of refined products.
Completion of the Phase 1 distillation unit is contingent upon obtaining the necessary financing for the project.
