The CFE, Mexico’s federal electricity commission, has awarded a USD 767m contract to design and construct the US section of the Waha-Presidio natural gas pipeline, designed to connect Mexico and the US, to a consortium comprised of Energy Transfer Partners, LP, Mastec, Inc., and Carso Energy
The 230 kilometres pipeline will provide gas to the Central, Northern and Western regions of Mexico

The project includes the design, engineering, procurement, construction, operation and maintenance of the Texas section of the pipeline, capable of transporting 1,350 million cubic feet and a diameter of 42 inches.

The project has the approval of Mexico’s ministry of energy and the energy regulatory commission

The contract with the consortium is worth around USD 767m, which the CFE has said is well below its USD 1.36bn budget for the project.

The 230 kilometres pipeline will provide gas to the Central, Northern and Western regions of Mexico.

It will interface with the Ojinaga-El Encino pipeline in Chihuahua, recently awarded by the CFE.

 Commercial operation of the pipeline is scheduled for March 2017.

Energy Transfer Partners LP, a member of the winning consortium, owns and operates a large portfolio of assets in the United States, including more than 53,000 kilometres of trunkline.
