BROWNSVILLE - Mexico’s state-owned electricity utility Comisión Federal de Electricidad (CFE) unveiled plans to tender projects for close to $10 billion, including an 800-kilometer submarine pipeline to carry natural gas from southern Texas to the Mexican Gulf Coast.

The biggest of the pipeline projects is a $3.1 billion underwater line from Brownsville, Texas to the Mexican Gulf port of Tuxpan.

The 800-kilometer (500-mile) pipeline will have capacity to transport 2.6 billion cubic feet a day of gas, and will supply CFE power plants in the Gulf Coast states of Tamaulipas and Veracruz, among other regions.

The contract is expected to be awarded in December, and the pipeline to go into operation in mid-2018.

The line is expected to connect to another pipeline planned from Nueces to Brownsville in southeastern Texas, which is expected to require investment of $1.55 billion.

The projects will add around 2,300 kilometers to the country’s gas pipeline network, 1,442 megawatts of electricity generating capacity, and more than 3,000 kilometers in transmission and distribution lines, CFE Chief Executive Enrique Ochoa said at an event.
