Midcoast Energy Resources said Midcoast del Bajio has been awarded a permit by the Mexican Energy Regulatory Commission to build a 59-mile, 16-inch diameter gas pipeline in the Bajio region in the state of Guanajuato in central Mexico. The line will run from an interconnection with a Pemex near Valtierrilla to Leon and will provide gas transportation services to parts of central Mexico that currently do not have access to gas. Midcoast del Bajio will hold an open season from July 16 to July 26 for firm transportation capacity on the proposed pipeline. And a series of informational meetings will be held jointly with Pemex to answer questions from potential transportation customers and other interested parties. The meetings will be held on June 24 in Irapuato, Guanajuato at the Hotel Parador del Rio and on June 25 in Leon, Guanajuato at the Fiesta Americana Hotel.

Chesapeake Utilities Corp. said it is expanding Central Florida Gas' natural gas distribution system into Citrus County, FL, sixty-five miles north of Tampa. The first five miles of the new system were put into service this week. "The interest in natural gas as an energy alternative has been very strong," said Chesapeake's Tom Geoffroy. In 1992, Florida Gas Transmission constructed a natural gas line through Citrus County. Seven years later, Central Florida Gas successfully completed the first phase of the distribution link to Florida Gas' mainline. By the first quarter of next year, the backbone system linking Crystal River, Homossassa Springs, Lecanto and Inverness is targeted for completion. About 35 miles of new pipe will be added.
