Between January and September 2018 and the first nine months of this year, imports of petroleum products increased by 1.8 million barrels, from 14.3 million barrels to 16.1 million barrels.

Friday, November 29, 2019

Regarding the imported value, the Central Bank of Honduras reported that at the end of the third quarter of 2019, imports of fuels, lubricants and electric energy were registered for $1.230 million, reporting a $9.9 million decrease year on year, explained by the decrease of 11.5% in the international price, partially offset by the 12.5% increase in the imported volume.

The document adds that "... In the period analyzed, bunker imports totaled US$253.0 million, registering a US$65.6 million (35.0%) increase, linked to the greater generation of thermal electric energy, which uses this product as input, given the reduction in the production of electricity based on hydroelectric sources.

Purchases abroad of diesel registered a total of US$420.8 million, reducing US$15.3 million compared with the observed to September 2018; in the same manner the other fuels showed the same behavior: superior gasoline with US$30.5 million, regular gasoline US$1.7 million, LPG US$11.7 million and kerosene US$11.5 million, caused by the decrease in international prices.
