Sempra Continues Mexican Invasion

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 northern Mexico.

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.
