Sierrita Plans U.S.-Mexico Border Crossing Pipeline Facilities

May 2013, Vol. 240, No. 5

Sierrita Gas Pipeline LLC has filed an application requesting a Presidential Permit and authorization to construct border crossing pipeline facilities and export of natural gas at the International Boundary between the United States and Mexico in Pima County, AZ.

The facilities would have a maximum daily export capacity of 200,846 Dth/d, and would connect with the Sasabe-Guaymas Pipeline in Mexico.

Concurrent with the filing, Sierrita filed an application with FERC to construct and operate a 59 mile, 36-inch natural gas pipeline located between Tucson and Sasabe, AZ. The company asked for the authorizations by February 2014 to allow sufficient time to secure required permits and international documents.
