BP- one of the first private companies in the market to supply natural gas in Mexico.

BP Energía México, BP’s natural gas marketing and trading arm in Mexico, has started to deliver approximately 200,000 mmbtu/d of natural gas to industrial users, local distribution companies and independent power producers in eight states in Mexico, making BP one of the first private companies to supply natural gas to the domestic market under the country’s energy reform measures.

The announcement comes after BP Energía México was awarded pipeline transportation rights at an auction hosted earlier this year by CENAGAS, Mexico’s national center for natural gas control. BP Energía México has also executed a firm transport agreement with CENAGAS in addition to agreements with other transporters and local distribution companies in order to offer bundled services for delivery of natural gas.

Delivery has begun across eight states – Nuevo Leon, Coahuila, San Luis Potosi, Veracruz, Mexico State, Guanajuato, Tamaulipas and Queretaro.
