Seven companies interested in Hermosillo gas pipeline

Seven companies have participated in a field visit to the location of the Hermosillo branch project. The Mexican state-owned electric company, CFE, is expected to launch the project on March.

The 48-km line will be constructed in the North-West state of Sonora, it will be connected to the Naco-Hermosillo transport system -part of the USA gas pipelines- and it will serve to the Hermosillo combined-cycle facility.

The companies involved are Gasoducto de Aguaprieta, subsidiary of the mexican IEnova part of the US Sempra Energy; Cointer México, Fermaca, Arendal, Grupo Desarrollo Infraestructura, GPA Energy and Carbures Pypsa.

The 16-inch-diametre line, which is expected to be constructed within 11 months, will have a capacity of 100 million standard cubic feet per day. The estimated investment reaches US$48 million and the concession agreement will have a period of 22 years.

The project is part of the US$10,000 million Mexican strategy focused on reinforcing the natural gas delivery and modernizing the power plants.
