U.S. Petroleum Product Exports to Mexico Rise, Mexican Crude Exports to U.S. Fall

The United States imported 850,000 barrels per day (bbl/d) of crude oil from Mexico in 2013, the lowest volume since 1993. In the past decade, U.S. crude oil imports from Mexico fell 47 percent, primarily as a result of declining production of crude oil in Mexico. Despite the decline, Mexico was the third largest source of crude oil imports to the United States in 2013, behind Canada and Saudi Arabia.

Conversely, U.S. exports of petroleum products to Mexico have increased 152 percent in the past decade. In 2013, the United States exported 527,000 bbl/d of petroleum products to Mexico, including motor gasoline (46 percent of the total), distillate fuel oil (22 percent), and liquefied petroleum gases (10 percent).

While the United States is a net exporter of petroleum products to Mexico, the United States also imports some petroleum products from Mexico. In 2013, the United States imported 68,000 bbl/d of products, most of which was residual fuel oil (41 percent), pentanes plus (24 percent), and naphtha (15 percent). As with crude oil, U.S. imports of petroleum products from Mexico have declined in recent years.

Assurance of Supply: A Top Concern for Manufacturers

Every manufacturer has an assurance of supply problem to some extent due to the complexity of global sourcing. For years, manufacturers were blessed with high margins but margins have grown paper thin. You can’t fill up your distribution centers with excess inventory – not only is there a cost factor but the pace of business and consumer buying trends causes goods to quickly turn obsolete. Assurance of supply provides the speed and agility that is essential to being able to compete in today’s market.
