Sempra Continues Mexican Invasion
Sempra Energy International said it began construction on a
23-mile, $35 million pipeline running from California to Mexico
last week, adding to the already-extensive activity the company is
involved in south of the border. The 300 MMcf/d pipeline is
scheduled to begin service to the Presidente Juarez power station
at Rosarito, Baja California by December.
The company plans to invest $1 billion in Mexican power projects
over the next 10 years with the overall goal of becoming the No. 1
privately owned, fully integrated provider of energy services in
Including this project, Sempra International will service 125,000
Mexican customers within the next five years, the company
said. Earlier last week, The Mexican Energy Regulatory Commission
awarded Sempra the license to build and operate a gas distribution
system in the La Laguna-Durango geographic zone of north-central
Mexico (See Daily GPI, May 19). It also
has gas distribution systems planned for the state of Chihuahua and
for Mexicali, Baja California.
