The Tamazunchale Pipeline is a 130 kilometer (81 miles) natural gas pipeline in east Central Mexico that connects facilities of Mexico's state-owned petroleum company to natural gas power generation plants near Tamazunchale, Mexico.
The Tamazunchale Pipeline Extension is a pipeline extension of the existing, TransCanada-operated, Tamazunchale Pipeline that links an LNG Terminal and natural gas supplies from the east coast of Mexico and the U.S. to key power facilities in Tamazunchale. The US$600 million pipeline uses a combination of 30- and 36- inch-diameter pipe. The Tamazunchale Pipeline Extension went into service in November of 2014.
This infrastructure allows Mexico to meet its growing energy demand and supports greenhouse gas reduction initiatives, allowing access to natural gas as a replacement fuel for heavy oil.
The Tamazunchale pipeline is part of TransCanada's network of natural gas pipelines that extends more than 68,500 kilometers (42,500 miles), tapping into virtually all major gas supply basins in North America. TransCanada is one of the continent’s largest providers of gas storage and related services with more than 400 billion cubic feet of storage capacity – that’s the second largest in North America. In total, TransCanada delivers approximately 20 per cent of the natural gas consumed in North America each day.
