Pipeline from the Eagle Ford Shale to Mexico opens

A new pipeline project to move Eagle Ford Shale natural gas into Mexico’s growing energy market has opened.NET Mexico Pipeline Partners LLC announced today that construction of its 120-mile pipeline is complete and ready to export natural gas to Mexico.Although Mexico has vast natural gas reserves, it hasn’t been able to develop them quickly enough to meet the country’s consumption, which has been climbing at four times the pace of overall economic growth at times in the past decade.The NET Mexico project is from the Agua Dulce hub in Nueces County to a point about six miles east of Rio Grande City in Starr County.The pipeline last November got the OK from the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission “to site, construct, connect, operate, and maintain a border-crossing facility” in Starr County for the export of natural gas.NET Mexico is an affiliate of Houston-based NET Midstream, which has a long-term agreement to transport up to 2.1 billion cubic feet of gas per day with MexGas Supply Ltd., a subsidiary of Mexico’s state-owned gas company, Pemex Gas y Petroquimica Basica.
