TransCanada puts Tamazunchale pipeline extension into service

TransCanada said that it has placed into service the Tamazunchale pipeline extension in Mexico.

The new US$600 million pipeline is an extension of the existing Tamazunchale pipeline that links an LNG terminal and natural gas supplies from the east coast of Mexico and U.S. to key power facilities in Tamazunchale. The extension begins at the end point of the existing Tamazunchale pipeline in the state of San Luis Potosi and extends through the states of Hidalgo and Queretaro, where it connects with Mexico’s national pipeline system and serves a combined-cycle power generating facility near El Sauz, Queretaro.

TransCanada has a 25-year natural gas transportation service contract with the Comisión Federal de Electricidad, Mexico’s state-owned power company. The pipeline extension is approximately 230 kilometers (144 miles) long and has a contracted capacity of 630 million cubic feet a day. The pipeline used a combination of 30- and 36-inch-diameter pipe.

TransCanada is currently constructing the Topolobampo pipeline, a US$1 billion pipeline project that will bring natural gas from in El Encino, Chihuahua, to Topolobampo, Sinaloa. The pipeline will interconnect with the Mazatlan pipeline, a US$400 million pipeline currently under construction, which begins at El Oro and ends in Mazatlan, also in Sinaloa.

Each pipeline is supported by a 25-year natural gas transportation service contract with the CFE. By 2016, TransCanada will have invested more than US$2.6 billion in Mexico.
