​​​​In this Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017, image, a warning sign is shown with a natural gas pipeline under construction in the background along Texas State Highway 48 near Brownsville, Texas. According to a previous news report, the line will stretch from Aqua Dulce, Texas through the Rio Grande Valley on its way to Mexico totaling 168 miles in length. (Jason Hoekema/The Brownsville Herald via AP)RIO GRANDE VALLEY – Valley Crossing Pipeline​ is currently under construction to supply fracked natural gas to Mexico from the Eagle Ford Shale oil fields in Central Texas.

The $1.5 billion pipeline, being built by Enbridge Inc., is not related to liquefied natural gas projects proposed for the Port of Brownsville. 

Rather, it’s being built to supply Mexican power plants as that country transitions from coal and imported LNG in the wake of sweeping energy reforms. 

The pipeline will receive gas from the Agua Dulce gas hub in Nueces County.

The 168-mile-long, 42-inch-wide pipeline is expected to be in service by October 2018, with a capacity of up to 2.6 billion cubic feet of natural gas per day.​
