Prosperidad Gas Pipeline is a proposed natural gas pipeline in the states of Oaxaca and Chiapas in southern Mexico.
The pipeline would run from Ixtepec, Oaxaca to Tapachula, Chiapas.
- Operator: Cenagas
- Parent Company: Cenagas
- Proposed capacity: 145 million cubic feet per day
- Length: 221 mi / 355 km
- Status: Proposed
- Start Year:
The 355-kilometer Prosperidad pipeline was originally proposed in November 2020 by the Mexican Secretary of Energy (SENER), which included the pipeline in its national integrated gas plan for 2020-2024. The pipeline would run from a junction with the Jáltipan-Salina Cruz Gas Pipeline in Ixtepec, Oaxaca state to Tapachula, Chiapas near the Mexico-Guatemala border. Two versions of the new pipeline were proposed, a larger 24- to 30-inch version with a capacity of 145 mmcf/d and a smaller 20-inch version with a capacity of 95 mmcf/d. Construction of the pipeline remains contingent on completion of the Jáltipan-Salina Cruz Gas Pipeline. As of 2021 no start date has been established for development of the Prosperidad pipeline. SENER estimates the project would require capital expenditures of US$ 261 million, which could potentially be provided by a private investor.
