It said it will fix them in the next few days at the Salina Cruz refinery, Pemex's biggest.

"When the quake struck, the turbogenerators were turning normally and suffered some damage," it said, Reuters reported.

The company added that it expected to restart Salina Cruz sometime soon, without going into further detail.

Pemex had shut down the refinery as a precaution following the 8.1 magnitude quake last Thursday.
