In order to increase the country’s ultra low-sulfur gasoline production as per the relevant environmental standards, PEMEX Refining has embarked on this clean fuels program. Director General of ICA Fluor, Juan Carlos Santos, said the installed capacity of the company is being maintained through these projects, while supporting PEMX to advance the goals as stated in the Energy Reform bill, which was approved recently. The bill includes growth of engineering capabilities and environmental responsibility in Mexico, Santos said.
