SICIM Expands its Footprint in Mexico
SICIM has recently increased its portfolio in Mexico with a new contract acquired through its subsidiary Constructora SICIM.
This contract constitutes a 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 and to decrease the cost of power energy generation.
The Southeast Gateway Project (SGP), consisting of approximately 1,000 km of offshore pipeline as a natural extension of the existing Sur de Texas pipeline system, is the intended feedstock to Mexico’s industrial facilities located along the proposed routing specifically at Mayakan (Merida and Valladolid), Salina Cruz and Dos Bocas. In the overall frame of the project, SICIM has been awarded the contract for the installation of all the associated works with the offshore pipeline landfall in Dos Bocas, including the gas metering, regulation, and control facilities.
The transition pipeline section between the offshore mainline and the onshore facilities will consist of 1 km of 36” product gas line inserted in a 48” pipe sleeve installed with the Direct Pipe technology, in order not to disturb the mangrove-protected shoreline. The works will be executed on an EPC basis to include detailed engineering, supply, and construction and commissioning of all facilities to be completed in the third quarter of 2024.
