Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s energy rhetoric has historically focused more on crude oil and refined products, but recent events have brought natural gas into the spotlight.

The fuel featured prominently in his first Informe de Gobierno, or government report, published on Sunday.

The report lists the achievements and policy goals of the regime at the nine-month mark of López Obrador’s presidency, which has made for a bumpy ride for the energy sector.

In a speech on Sunday unveiling the document, the president touted the resolution of a contractual dispute between state power utility Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) and four natural gas pipeline developers.

The deal has cleared the way for commercial gas volumes to begin flowing on the 2.6 Bcf/d Sur de Texas-Tuxpan subsea pipeline, considered essential for easing gas and electricity shortages in the Yucatán Peninsula.
