Background

In 2014, Pemex announced plans to build a $6-billion natural gas liquefaction plant at Salina Cruz. It was met with skepticism, with analysts arguing that Pemex lacks a track record for a comparable operation, and that there isn’t enough gas in Mexico to support export infrastructure. Even so, Pemex suggested an operational date as early as 2020.[1]

There have been no development updates since 2014, and the project is presumed to be canceled.

A separate LNG project, the Salina Cruz LNG Terminal, has subsequently been proposed for the same location.
