Carlos Treviño Medina, CEO of Petróleos Mexicanos, Miguel Márquez Márquez, governor of Guanajuato, and Marco Antonio Mena Rodríguez, governor of Tlaxcala, agreed on the need to maintain the current pace of collaboration to put an end to organized crime.

In Guanajuato, contracts of 12 Pemex service stations were cancelled for failing to document the origin of the gasoline they were selling. Illegal siphoning was also reduced by 10 percent.

Fifty-two illegal siphonings were also detected and ceased in Tlaxcala thanks to the raids carried out by the Pemex Security personnel with support of the military, federal and state police, and municipal corporations.

Pemex is losing more than US $1.6 billion a year due to fuel theft, said Treviño.
