Mexican refiners along the country's western coast were relatively spared as the remnants of Tropical Storm Franklin move out to sea, an industry report found.
Franklin bounced along the western Mexican coast this week, hitting the country twice as a Category 1 hurricane. According to the U.S. National Hurricane Center, Franklin is still producing strong thunderstorms offshore and could strengthen before moving to colder waters and weakening by Sunday.
According to the energy news service for Argus media, the storm forced several ports in the region to close. The largest, Doc Bocas, exported about 94 million barrels of crude oil and refined products for the first month of the year.
Argus reports no major disruptions or damage associated with the storm.

No other warnings were issued from the National Hurricane Center for the region. Two weak systems are brewing off the eastern coast of Florida and further out near the Caribbean Islands.
