TransCanada to Build $2.1 Bn Gas Pipeline in Mexico

Calgary-based energy infrastructure company TransCanada said it would build and operate a $2.1 billion natural gas pipeline in Mexico, Reuters reported Monday. TransCanada will own a 60 percent stake in the project, and San Diego-based Sempra Energy’s IEnova unit will hold the remaining stake. TransCanada said Monday the Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline would be built through a joint venture between the two companies and be backed by a 25-year transportation service contract with Mexico’s state-owned power company. Houston-based Spectra Energy said it won a contract to build and operate a $1.5 billion natural gas pipeline in Texas that would connect to the 497 mile-

long Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline. The Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline is expected to be in service by late 2018 and is the largest of three new projects in Mexico that TransCanada has recently announced. Construction has already begun on the $500 million Tuxpan-Tula pipeline and the $550 million Tula-Villa de Reyes lines. “This new project brings our footprint of existing assets and projects in development in Mexico to more than $5 billion,” TransCanada CEO Russ Girling said in a statement. U.S. President Barack Obama rejected TransCanada’s Keystone XL oil pipeline expansion last year, and the company is currently struggling to gain approval for its Energy East project in Canada.
