TULSA, Okla., Feb. 07, 2018 - Matrix Service Company (Nasdaq:MTRX) announced today that Grupo Desarrollo Infraestructura S.A. de C.V. (GDI) has awarded Matrix Service Inc., a subsidiary of Matrix Service Company, the engineering, procurement, fabrication and general tank construction oversight for 12 tanks that will be part of a new marine liquids fuel terminal located at the Port of Veracruz. The terminal is being built by Infraestructura Energetica Nova, S.A.B. de C.V. (BMV:IEnova) following execution of a 20-year concession agreement with the Port Authority of Veracruz and a long-term storage contract with a subsidiary of Valero Energy Corp.
GDI is the EPC contractor for the terminal, which, when finished, will be the largest private refined products marine terminal built in Mexico after the country’s recent energy reform. When complete, the new liquid fuels terminal will have a nominal capacity of 2.1 million barrels and a working capacity of 1.7 million barrels of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and methyl tert-butyl ether (MTBE) to supply the central region of Mexico. The Veracruz terminal is also the first of three storage facilities to be constructed by IENOVA in central Mexico as part of the country’s emerging $10 billion liquids market.
“We take great pride in our position as a leader in tank and terminal design for our customers across the energy markets and, as we launch this project, look forward to building a lasting, partnership relationship with GDI and Ienova,” said John R. Hewitt, CEO of Matrix Service Company.
Said Franco Bonfanti, President of GDI, “GDI has been actively supporting international companies with natural gas pipeline infrastructure projects in Mexico for the last 10 years. This storage terminal project represents an opportunity to expand our service offering to long-term customers like IEnova, and to enter the rapidly growing storage infrastructure market in Mexico in partnership with a leader in the storage solutions industry, Matrix Service Company.”
The award by GDI represents a significant, strategic milestone for Matrix Service Company as it extends its reach into international markets.
