​​​ An image from MMEX's website for their Pecos County Refinery Project in Fort Stockton, Texas.FORT STOCKTON, PECOS COUNTY – MMEX Resources, which plans to build a West Texas refinery, intends to build a solar farm on its property that will provide electricity to the refinery.

The company owns 126 acres just northeast of Fort Stockton and plans to acquire another 390 acres from neighboring properties.

With the first phase of the refinery project requiring ten acres and the second phase requiring up to 130 acres the rest of the land can house a solar farm.

A 10,000-barrel-per-day crude distillation unit being built as part of phase one of the refinery project will require an estimated 2 megawatts of power.

Phase two of the project, a 100,000-barrel-per-day refinery, will require 35 to 50 megawatts of electricity.

Any surplus power from the solar farm can be sold to the state's wholesale electricity market.
