The president of the Confederation of National Chambers of Commerce, Services and Tourism (Concanaco), José Manuel López Campos, proposes to bring liquefied natural gas to Yucatán, Campeche and Quintana Roo by sea or in pipes, in order to avoid future blackouts in the region.
The business leader warned that if no measures are taken to guarantee the arrival of natural gas to the Yucatan Peninsula in the coming months, there is a real risk of blackouts which could result in serious damages to different economic sectors of the region.
He added that the intention of this proposal is for the fuel to arrive in time for the combined cycle power plants of the Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) to work at full capacity and stop the blackouts that are significantly affecting the three states of the Peninsula.
In an interview, López Campos pointed out that if nothing is being done and the natural gas is not pumped from Texas yet. Therefore, if other alternatives such as liquefied gas are not sought, the blackouts would be more frequent every time, and there would be significant economic damages at a regional level.
“If we do not implement actions to resolve this situation, not only will there be damages during the time that the blackouts last, but also the production lines of the companies will be interrupted, which will lead to noncompliance with the suppliers, in addition to serious damages to the tourism industry during the summer holiday season, “he said.
López Campos pointed out that at this moment there are advances in the transoceanic pipeline that connects Texas with Tuxpan, Veracruz, to transport natural gas; however, he recalled that it is necessary to install turbocompressors to propel this hydrocarbon all the way down to the Yucatán Peninsula.
