Booming natural gas exports to Mexico may be at risk

Bloomberg reports: Although Mexico is one of the world’s top 20 natural gas producers, in recent years demand there has jumped well ahead of the country’s domestic production. As a result, Mexico has become the most important foreign destination for U.S. natural gas. In 2010, Mexico imported 0.9 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d) of natural gas from the U.S. By the end of 2016 that had grown to more than 4 Bcf/d, which is over 5% of daily U.S. natural gas production. Over the next few years natural gas demand in Mexico is projected to increase by nearly another 2 Bcf/d, as a result of new electrical generation capacity additions. That demand will be primarily satisfied by more imports from the U.S. But it will also necessarily involve a continued build-out of pipeline capacity from the U.S. into Mexico, some of which is already well underway.

Feds approve Atlantic Bridge natural gas project with compressor station in Massachusetts

MassLive reports: Federal pipeline regulators this week approved the construction of Atlantic Bridge, a $450 million project designed to expand the transport of natural gas from the Marcellus shale basin into New England and the Canadian Maritimes. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission on Jan. 25 issued a certificate of public convenience and necessity to Spectra Energy for a set of proposed upgrades and new construction spanning four states. Plans includes 6.3 miles of 42-inch pipeline in New York and Connecticut, new and expanded compressors — including a major facility in Weymouth — and various meter station upgrades, including one in Westbrook, Maine. The Atlantic Bridge would beef up the Algonquin Gas Transmission and Maritimes & Northeast systems to boost capacity by around 133 million cubic feet per day.
