US-based gas pipeline EPGN has plans to strengthen the US-Mexico relationship by collaborating with Mexico’s Grupo Clisa in the new Yuma II gas project. The project aims to bolster the available gas supply in Sonora and Baja, California.

The pipeline project will set up a second connection point at the US-Mexico border, which links Yuma town to San Luis Rio Colorado. Currently, at the same border, the only connection is the North Baja of TC Energy and the Rosarito pipeline of Sempra.

The new pipeline is estimated to be 225 kilometers and will connect EPGN’s South Mainline system at a site in Wenden station, Arizona, with San Luis Rio Colorado, which is in northern Sonora. The gas companies will use a new set of border crossing facilities which will increase the capacity of the area to transport that flows from West Texas and the Rocky Mountains to the Pacific Coast of Mexico.

EPGN has expressed confidence that the pipeline would boost the competitiveness of Mexico by supplying the locals with cheaper natural gas.

The project co-partners have plans to make the line operational before 2026. However, the companies also noted that the schedules are subject to changes.
