El Encino – La Laguna Gas Pipeline.
El Encino - La Laguna Pipeline is a natural gas pipeline from El Encino Compression Station in Chihuahua State to Lerdo Power Plant in Durango State, Mexico.
The project consist in the engineering, procurement and construction of 414 km of 42” pipeline and represent an important infrastructure for Mexican Oil & Gas Market, that will supply 1,500 MPCD of natural gas to the Power Plants of Comisión Federal de Energía (CFE) placed in Chihuahua and Durango states, helping with the economic development of the central-occidental areas of Mexico.
The project is divided in two phases, the first will provide gas to the Power Plan of Delicias through the construction of 67 km of 42” pipeline and 45 km of 16” pipeline, , and the second will provide gas to the Power Plant of Lerdo through the construction of 347 km of 42” pipeline and 10 km of 20” pipeline.
Project include also the installation of three Metering, Regulation and Control Stations at support of the pipeline, one in Delicias, one in Lerdo and one in Leon Guzman.
The project consists of the design, procurement & construction, of a gas pipeline system:
- 414 km of 42” pipeline
- 12 block valves along the path.
- At the interconnections, receipt and delivery pig-traps, with a control valve to be operated and controlled by the SCADA system.
- 2 intermediate receipt and delivery pig-traps.
- Three Metering, Regulation and Control Stations (EMRC), one in Delicias, one in Lerdo and one in Leon Guzman with a corresponding pig-trap receiver.
