In this paper, we present the experience of 10 years of collaboration between the Electric Research Institute and Pemex Refining to modernize the power electric systems of the National Refining System in Mexico, collaborating together to design an electrical energy system for distribution that can operate reliably at the increase in the quantity and quality of oil products with the integration of new processing plants. We present the extensive cooperation between the personnel involved and in contrast unexecuted planning to implement the solutions. Also, after a decade of collaboration, we present the different scenarios, factors and challenges in the medium and long term that will assure that the electrical systems are in healthier conditions to operate for the next years and will achieve the required reliability of the national refining system for gasoline demand, to result in an operational reliability conferring to a World Class utility practice.
