Energy and lack of competitiveness: globalized worldCommented that the national economy requires competitive energy markets for Mexican products do not lose market inside and outside the country. In recent years, national energy that have lostcompetitiveness and is likely to recover only if modified to fund the tax system, since energy is a major source of revenue for the treasury. Production costs of crude oil and gas in Mexico are very low and thisshould be a competitive advantage for domestic industry. However, as the energy charge for industrial use based on the prices of South America, the sole beneficiary of these costs down, now, is theMinistry of Finance.
Here is an example. The cost of natural gas production in Mexico can be calculated roughly based on the volume and cost of production and investment in Pemex-Exploration andProduction displayed on the Statistical Report on the Work of Pemex, taking into account the heat equivalence between different fuels. These numbers indicate that the production cost is about $ 0.62 permillion British thermal units (or Btus). The difference between that cost and price of between 4 and $ 6 per million Btus to pay for the gas industry is profit for the treasury. Then, we should rethinkthe contributions to the Pemex fuel sold to the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), and the national industry, decoupling these references in South Texas where possible and desirable. In the case ofnatural gas, by the enormous difference between production costs and consumer prices should be feasible in the long run, setting a "price Mexico" is less than the price in South Texas. Due to therecent price increase of the creed, gas and industrial fuels, such as fuel oil and jet fuel-in the international market, is likely to worsen this problem that involves the linkage with Texans. In turn,...
