State-run oil company Pemex, through its subsidiary MexGas Supply, has opened a tender for a floating storage and regasification unit (FSRU) to be installed at the Port of Pajaritos in Veracruz state. The contract would be for the design, installation and operation of an LNG import terminal in the southern Mexican port of Pajarito.
“The project’s objective is to market natural gas in Mexico’s south-southeast region through the creation of a new import injection point at the marine and storage terminal of Pajaritos,” MexGas Supply has said.
The project will consist of an FSRU with a capacity of up to 600 MMcf/d, which will be installed for a period of five years at the port of Pajaritos in Coatzacoalcos in the Gulf state of Veracruz.
The winning bidder for the FSRU will also construct a 14 km, 24-inch diameter pipeline to interconnect the unit to Cenagas’s Sistrangas network at Pemex’s Gas Processing Plant Etileno Cangrejera.
Interested companies must register for the tender by July 11. The winner is expected to be announced at the end of summer, and should bring the terminal on line within seven months of the award.
MexGas Supply said the project would take approximately seven months to begin commercial operations from the date it was awarded. The open tender was expected to conclude by the end of the summer.
