Mexico City, Mexico — The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE) and TC Energy Corp., a Canadian pipeline operator company, signed an agreement that will see both companies work together to complete the project.
In their agreement is to finish the construction of the Tuxpan-Tula gas pipeline.
“The CFE has agreed with the company TC Energy to take a more active role to resolve social conflicts and complete the Tuxpan-Tula gas pipeline, essential for transporting natural gas from the Gulf of Mexico to the center of the country.”
Both companies will seek to develop a natural gas transportation system by sea to the Mexican southeast.
“Our agreement will also seek to resolve the historical problem of the lack of natural gas supply to the Mexican southeast and the Yucatan Peninsula, through the construction of a marine system that will run from Tuxpan, Veracruz and connect with the Mayakán gas pipeline in the states of Campeche and Tabasco,” stated the CFE.
Manuel Bartlett, head of the CFE, pointed out that security in the supply of this gas pipeline will give reliability to the electrical system and will be a development engine for the Yucatan Peninsula and southeastern Mexico.
The agreement will consist of consolidating, in a single contract, the gas pipeline systems of TC Energy contracted by the CFE in the center of the country.
“This implies savings in the CFE’s payment commitments to the Canadian company. In the same way, the CFE will obtain additional services in the new joint system that will help to continue guaranteeing the citizens the security and energy sovereignty of Mexico,” he stressed.
The CFE said that these agreements will be reflected in a partnership where Mexican and Canadian companies will work hand-in-hand to provide energy solutions to Mexicans.
