Nov 1 TransCanada Corp said on
Thursday its Mexican subsidiary has been awarded the contract to
build, own and operate the El Encino-to-Topolobampo Pipeline by
CFE, Mexico's federal power company.
The Canadian pipeline operator expects to invest about $1
billion in the pipeline project, which is supported by a 25-year
natural gas transportation service contract with the Comision
Federal de Electricidad (CFE).
The pipeline will be about 530 kilometers (329 miles) long
and have contracted capacity of 670 million cubic feet per day.
It is anticipated the project will be in-service in the third
quarter of 2016, the company said.
