Southeast Gateway Project


At TC Energy we are committed to providing energy solutions for our future. Together with Mexico’s Federal Electricity Commission (CFE), we are developing the Southeast Gateway Project. It consists of the construction of a marine pipeline that will transport natural gas, connecting the supply from Tuxpan, Veracruz, to delivery points in Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, and in Paraíso, Tabasco.

This project represents a significant long-term investment into the future for the population of southeastern Mexico by providing them with a new dedicated pipeline with state-of-the-art technology for transportation of natural gas that covers the country's growing energy demand.

715 KM

Cleaner energy solutions for the future

The Southeast Gateway pipeline will have a capacity of 1.3 billion cubic feet per day. Through its interconnections, it will supply other strategic projects, enabling future industrial products to benefit from using natural gas for their production processes. From Coatzacoalcos, Veracruz, the Southeast Gateway will continue on to Paraiso, Tabasco, where it will interconnect with other pipelines securing the supply of natural gas to the Yucatan Peninsula, where it will serve CFE’s combined power generation plants that are under construction providing energy security to the three states in the peninsula.

Natural gas will help millions of Mexicans to have access to cleaner, more reliable energy and a better quality of life.

Economic Growth

A door to social and economic well-being

It’s anticipated up to 4,000 direct and indirect jobs will be generated during peak construction. Once in operation, Southeast Gateway will deliver the natural gas needed to enable further economic growth.

States with natural gas infrastructure have a GDP per capita 50% higher than those without, and thanks to natural gas, this door will open to attract and retain private sector investment.

Enabling the growth of industrial activity, increased competitiveness, and investments in the Central, Bajio, South and Southeast regions of the country, triggering the social wellbeing, creating long-term well-paid jobs, and reducing the inequality that the South of Mexico has suffered and unifying the country further.
