LNG receiving terminal in Mexico

CMS Energy Corporation and Sempra Energy have announced an agreement to jointly develop a major new liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminal to bring much-needed natural gas supplies into NW Mexico and Southern California. The joint venture will develop, finance, build and own the LNG facility and related port infrastructure, located on the Pacific Coast north of Ensenada, Baja California, Mexico. The plant will have a send-out capacity of
approximately 1 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas. The natural gas will flow north into Baja California and the southwestern United States via a new 40-mile pipeline between the terminal and existing pipelines in the region. This infrastructure will particularly benefit Baja California by making greater supplies of natural gas available to fuel economic growth and
serve new and existing power plants and industries in the area. The two companies have secured an optimal site for the terminal – more than 300 acres of industrial-zoned land far removed from any residential areas.
