Industry sources attributed the drop to lower running rates of refineries in the country.

Mexico's largest refinery, the 330,000 b/d Salina Cruz facility, was shut twice in August due to power outages, S&P Global Platts reported earlier.

Pemex's 190,000 b/d Madero refinery and 285,000 b/d Minatitlan refinery underwent major repairs in June and July, respectively.

As a result, Pemex's total refining utilization rate during the third week of October reached a record low of 25.7%, an operation report from the Mexican state company showed Tuesday, Platts reported previously.

The company processed 425,800 b/d of crude oil in the second week of October, 64,100 b/d less than in the previous week and down from 866,000 b/d in mid-April.

Fuel oil from Mexico typically has high density and high viscosity.
