In May 2016, IEnova entered into a 21-year natural gas transportation services agreement with the CFE to develop, construct and operate the 12.5-mile Empalme Lateral pipeline. The pipeline, originally estimated to cost $12 million, was scheduled for commissioning in the first half of 2017.
The pipeline was ready to begin commercial operations upon completion of construction in June 2017 but it has since experienced commissioning delays. As of February 2019 the US $10.8 million project remained idle, having been used only for tests.
