21 July 2014 — The Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), Mexico’s state owned company that regulates the energy market, is to tender for several electric infrastructures and pipeline projects. The tender will be held late this year and the projects are valued at $2.8bn.

Among the planned projects are two combined-cycle stations and two pipelines as well as an electric transmission project, Reuters reported. All of the projects will be constructed in the northern region of Mexico, close to the US border.

The US could increase gas imports thanks to the pipelines.

GDF Suez, KEPCO and Sempra Energy are among the companies that could be interested in the projects.
