May 13--MEXICO CITY--State-owned oil monopoly Petroleos Mexicanos will launch the reconfiguration of a major refinery complex this month, embarking on the "single largest infrastructure project" of President Vicente Fox's six-year term, officials said Monday.
The $1.65 billion plan calls for nearly doubling the capacity of the "Gen. Lazaro Cardenas" refinery in Minatitlan, a Gulf Coast town in the state of Veracruz. Petroleos Mexicanos, or Pemex, controls all oil exploration, production and refining south of the border, as well as gasoline sales.
