GRTgaz develops Mexico's energy infrastructures

GRTgaz develops Mexico's energy infrastructures.

 

A major energy infrastructure project in Mexico

Designed to import gas from the United States, the Los Ramones South II project concerns a segment of the Los Ramones pipeline – one of the largest energy infrastructure projects in Mexico's history, since it stretches from the Texas border to the centre of the country. Stretching some 291 km with a 1,050 mm diameter, the Los Ramones South II pipeline includes a compression station and five metering stations. It will be capable of supplying close to 40 million m3 of natural gas a day.

 

Project partners

  • ENGIE (50 %)
  • Investment firms Black Rock and First Reserve (45 %)
  • Pemex - Mexico's national oil company (5 %)
 

The role of GRTgaz

After participating to the project proposal, GRTgaz is responsible for keeping work on schedule in the central region of Mexico. A team of experts is on site to assist the Mexican works contractor. Support is also provided from France. The extension to the Los Ramones South II pipeline stretches from San Luis Potosí to Apaseo El Alto, Guanajuato.

This major pipeline is due to be commissioned in two stages between July and September 2016. The project establishes GRTgaz's blue-chip credentials for bidding on similar tenders and exporting its skills and expertise.
