(Energy Analytics Institute, Piero Stewart, 17.Oct.2018) — Petróleos Mexicanos (Pemex) has registered 40,000 clandestine pipeline connections in the last six years, announced company General Director Carlos Treviño during a speech to the Chamber of Deputies.

“Pemex is most concerned about this problem as it damages a company of Mexican citizens,” reported the daily El Financiero, citing Treviño.

Illicit pipeline connections continue to rise due to increased participation of organized groups mainly in states such as Puebla, Hidalgo, Guanajuato, Veracruz and Jalisco, reported the daily, citing data from 2008.

The municipalities most affected include: San Martin Texmelucan, Atlacomulco de Zuniga Jalisco, Cuautepec de Hinojosa, Gonzalez Tamaulipas and Tula de Allende, said the official.
