SICIM Awarded Contracts in Mexico
SICIM has recently increased its portfolio in Mexico with two new contracts acquired through its subsidiary Constructora SICIM. Both projects are key to the strategy of the CFE investment plan, aimed at increasing the capacity of the national system of natural gas transportation to extend the regional distribution coverage, in order to decrease the cost of power energy generation.
The Cuxtal Fase I Pipeline Project, consisting of the EPC installation of a 14.3 km long 36” gasline and the associated metering, regulation and control facilities, will connect the 780 km Mayakan pipeline owned by ENGIE, with the national natural gas transportation and storage system (SISTRANGAS) currently managed by the National Control Centre of natural gas (Cenagas). Mayakan is the only gas pipeline in the Yucatan Peninsula and is supposed to be extended with a further section of 158 km up to Cancun, strongly supported by the Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador.
The EC Booster Guadalajara Project has been awarded to SICIM by Fermaca with the strategic objective of expanding the capacity of natural gas delivery in the Jalisco State to be able to sell natural gas to private customers under the framework established in the 2013 Energy Reform. The project consists of the installation of two booster compressors with associated metering, regulation and control facilities.
