FERC recently granted a Presidential Permit and National Gas Act Section 3 authorization for Houston Pipe Line Company LP to build a transboundary pipeline to export and/or import natural gas from Texas into Mexico. The pipeline is planned to supply gas-fired power plants and industrial customers in Mexico. FERC found that the project is not inconsistent with the public interest, as it “will promote national economic policy by reducing barriers to foreign trade and stimulating the flow of goods and services between the United States and Mexico” and “will have minimal impact on landowners.”  A copy of the order in FERC Docket CP14-13 can be found here.
