State-owned Comision Federal de Electricidad (CFE) has awarded Sempra Energy's 81 per cent-owned Mexic CFE power plant an energy infrastructure company a $108m natural gas transportation contract for a power plant in Chihuahua.

The project to be built by early 2017 includes a header facility and a 14-mile pipeline with that would supply gas to CFE's Norte III combined-cycle gas-fired power generation plant. The pipeline is to interconnect with three new pipelines into Mexico.

Sempra Infraestructura Energetica Nova SAB de CV (IEnova) won the contract through its Gasoducto de Aguaprieta S. de RL de CV subsidiary, which signed the 25-year capacity deal with CFE.

As of last year, IEnova had $3.5 billion of operating assets and projects under construction in Mexico, making it one of the largest private energy companies in the country. IEnova claims to be the first energy infrastructure company listed on the Mexican Stock Exchange.
