BROWNSVILLE - A key component of gasoline is now flowing in a cross-border pipeline built by San Antonio-based NuStar Energy linking a production facility in Mexico with the Port of Brownsville.

Mexico's national oil company PetrĂ³leos Mexicanos (PEMEX) reported that naphthalene started flowing on April 1 from their production facility in Reynosa to a terminal in the Port of Brownsville.

PEMEX subsidiary PMI and NuStar signed a ten-year joint venture deal last year to build the cross-border pipeline.

Under the deal, NuStar built a terminal facility on the American side of the border in Edinburg, which then connects via pipeline to a Transmontaigne Partners LP facility in the Port of Brownsville.

PEMEX officials reported that NuStar's planned construction of a second terminal in Edinburg would allow for even greater volumes.

The cross-border pipeline deal is part of Mexico's historic energy reforms, which have allowed for foreign investment for the first time in more than 70 years.
