Mexican energy infrastructure firm IEnova, a unit of U.S.-based Sempra Energy , said on Thursday it had increased a credit line with a group of banks to $1.17 billion from $600 million.

The credit line will be used as working capital, investments as well as other general corporate projects, IEnova said in a statement to the Mexican stock exchange.
