Sempra signs a deal with Federal Electricity Commission

Sempra has signed deals with Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission to advance the development of the planned Vista Pacifico LNG export project in Topolobampo and to work on a new LNG terminal in Salina Cruz, Oaxaca. These new agreements establish the framework to ultimately enable the restoration of service provided by the Guaymas-El Oro pipeline.

The two firms signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding for the development of Vista Pacifico LNG.

The mid-scale facility would have a capacity of 4 mtpa and would connect to two existing pipelines.

The newest deals with CFE “outline the path forward for the Vista Pacífico LNG terminal, including the definition of the project’s configuration to advance engineering and permitting efforts.”

Besides the Vista Pacifico LNG project, two firms are expanding the memorandum of understanding to jointly explore the potential development of the LNG terminal in Salina Cruz.

Salina Cruz has been previously mentioned as a potential location for an LNG terminal.

Sempra said these three developments would allow CFE to potentially optimize the use of existing natural gas pipeline systems, provide additional sources of LNG supply for isolated markets in Mexico, and continue to expand LNG supplies to the global market.
