Texas-Sinaloa gas pipeline starting operations in July

The natural gas pipeline infrastructure in Mexico will have a 70% increase by the end of the current presidential office, going from 11,347 kilometers in 2012 to 18,800 kilometers at the close of this administration, said the Energy Secretariat, Joaquin Coldwell. During a meeting with the governor of Sinaloa, Quirino Ordaz Coppel, a report was released stating that the gas pipeline that will connect southern Texas and Chihuahua with Topolobampo and Mazatlan will begin operations in the second half of July. This infrastructure work will have a length of 982 kilometers and a maximum capacity of 670 million cubic feet per day. Its installation involves an expense of US$1.413 billion. With the arrival of natural gas to Sinaloa, the national economy will be able to attract companies and new private investments, to generate jobs and economic benefits in the State.
