Houston, Texas – October 20th, 2017
Mexico Pacific Limited LLC (MPL), the owner and developer of a liquefied natural gas (LNG) project on the Gulf of California in Mexico, announced today that it has received an investment from AECOM Capital’s Infrastructure fund to advance development of its LNG liquefaction complex.
MPL is a cost-advantaged and scalable LNG liquefaction project on the west coast of North America. Based at Puerto Libertad in the state of Sonora, Mexico, MPL has a deep-water port and is interconnected with the US shale gas grid by multiple natural gas pipelines, which are already in service bringing natural gas to the site.
MPL President Robert Kelly said, “AECOM Capital’s Infrastructure fund’s financial commitment and development investment expertise materially strengthens MPL’s position and will allow us to conclude pre-construction work and ensure the LNG facility achieves target operations by 2022. This is an important milestone that advances our ability to offer the lowest all-in cost LNG to Mexican, South American, Central American and Pacific basin markets from a uniquely advantaged next-generation west coast LNG facility”.
“We are excited to partner with MPL, which has an experienced management team and strong investors with a successful track record of developing core infrastructure assets around the world,” said Mark McComiskey, senior managing director of AECOM Capital’s Infrastructure fund. “We have studied multiple LNG infrastructure projects globally and believe that MPL is highly strategic and offers significant advantages to serving leading growth LNG markets in Mexico, the Americas and Asia.”
MPL is a joint venture of DKRW Energy Sonora Holding LLC and AECOM Capital.
