ExxonMobil has partnered with retailer Grupo Orsan to open eight Mobile-branded service stations in Queretaro, Mexico. Fuel will be distributed by rail via two private terminals that are served by Kansas City Southern de Mexico.

The terminals are located in San Luis Potosi and San Jose Iturbide, Mexico.

ExxonMobile plans to open 50 stations in Mexico's Bajio region by the end of 2018's first quarter, company officials said in a press release.

"The opening of these first eight Mobil service stations, made possible by Mexico's new energy policy regime, is a significant milestone for the country and our company," said Carlos Rivas, fuels director for ExxonMobil Mexico. "We look forward to helping meet the country's growing demand for energy with a reliable supply of high-quality fuels and a positive customer experience."

The new stations are part of ExxonMobil's plan to invest $300 million in fuels logistics, product inventories and marketing in Mexico over the next decade.
