Mexico Reopens Main Oil Export Port, Two Remain Closed.
Mexico's principal oil export port, Cayo Arcas, reopened Sunday after closing earlier because of poor weather conditions, the Communications and Transport Ministry said. The oil export ports of Pajaritos and Dos Bocas remained closed, according to the ministry's afternoon report. The three ports handle most of the exports of state oil monopoly Petroleos Mexicanos.
Pemex, one of the top foreign suppliers of crude oil to the U.S., exported an average of 1.23 million barrels a day of crude oil in 2009.
Temporary port closures, frequent in winter months, usually don't affect Pemex's export levels.
