MEXICO CITY Mexican steel producer Industrias CH SAB de CV has signed an agreement with TransCanada Corp. to provide 73 miles of 30-inch diameter pipes over the next 14 months.
"These pipes will be (used) for the gas pipeline awarded by Mexicos state-owned electricity firm CFE, which will run from El Encino, in Chihuahua state, to Topolobampo, in Sinaloa state," the company said in a March 13 filing with Mexicos stock exchange.
"Industrias CH hopes to continue participating in the infrastructure projects being developed in the country," it added.
TransCanadas Mexican subsidiary, Transportadora de Gas Natural del Noroeste, late last year was awarded the $1-billion, 329-mile project, which is supported by a 25-year natural gas transportation service contract with CFE.
The pipeline will come on-stream in the third quarter of 2016, the company said.
