According to Natural Gas Inteligence, Mexico aims to invest about $85 million USD in two infrastructure projects intended to shore up natural gas supply on the southeast Yucatan Peninsula, which suffers from persistent gas shortages and blackouts.
The first project would reconfigure the Cempoala compressor station on the Sistrangas pipeline network to allow expected gas imports on Mexico’s east coast to reach farther south. The second would interconnect the privately owned Mayakan pipeline, which serves power plants on the peninsula, to Sistrangas near the Cactus processing plant in Tabasco state.
The Centro Nacional de Control del Gas Natural (Cenagas), the state-run operator of Sistrangas, is holding a tender for the Cempoala project, expected to cost $36 million USD. France’s Engie SA plans to invest another $49 million USD in the interconnection project for Mayakan, which it owns through a Mexican subsidiary.
“Due mainly to industrial and commercial growth, the south-southeast region of the country is faced with a natural gas supply deficit,” the Energy Ministry (Sener) said. “Sener, Cenagas and Engie are working together to find a comprehensive solution to this problem.”
Both projects are part of a three-pronged approach that Mexican energy officials have previously discussed as a way to ease gas shortages on the Yucatan Peninsula. U.S gas imports currently do not reach southeast Mexico, while associated gas production at the southern offshore oilfields operated by Petroleos Mexicanos (Pemex) has dropped sharply in recent years.
