CFE and Pemex push for new projects in advance of the Energy Reform
This report offers an outlook for pipeline projects in Mexico, with attention given to CFE’s initial five natural gas projects in northern Mexico. The point of departure is the presentation made by CFE’s Guillermo Turrent in Houston on April 23, 2014. Other pipeline ideas are mentioned, such as Pemex’s trans-isthmian project and a gas pipeline from Chiapas to Guatemala.
The report offers a critique of the market architecture in Mexico for natural gas, and express concerns regarding the mixed signals about the future in which open access and secondary markets might appear in Mexico, with a price hub inside the country.
This report draws on the presentation and discussion at the CRE pipeline conference that was held in Houston on April 23, 2014.
