Mexico Defines Another Distribution Zone

Mexico's energy regulatory commission (CRE) defined the gas distribution geographic zone of North Bajio to include municipalities Aguascalientes-Jesus Maria-San Francisco de los Romo, Aguascalientes; San Luis Potosi-Soledad de Graciano Sanchez, San Luis Potosi; and Zacatecas-Guadalupe, Fresnillo, Calera and Morelos, Zacatecas. About $35 million will be needed to develop the distribution network, the CRE said. Belgian company Tractebel is said to be interested in developing the distribution system. The region has more than 1.6 million residents and 342,000 homes 86% of which are equipped with running water and liquefied propane gas installations. The homes consume about 16.2 MMcf/d of propane.

In addition, the CRE recently issued transportation permits for the Bajio geographic zone. TransCanada and Gutsa hold a permit for 126-mile line. Tejas Gas International, Southern Union Co., and Integrated Gas Services de Mexico plan to build a 142-mile line. And Midcoast Gas Services and Associated Pipeline Contractors have a permit to build a 62-mile line.
