August 15, 2018
La Paz, Baja California Sur.- Governor Carlos Mendoza led the ceremony with which he began the project for the construction of a liquefied natural gas terminal in the port of Pichilingue, work in which 3,600 million pesos will have to be invested by the company New Fortress Energy.
The plant will be completed and will begin operations in the year 2020, offering a clean and reliable option, cheaper and with a reduction of 70 percent in the emission of pollutants; an infrastructure and an offer that will be one of the greatest legacies of the government, in an entity that for decades has had the most expensive and most subsidized electricity tariffs in the country.
This was pointed out by the Governor Carlos Mendoza Davis to highlight the importance of this project with which it will be possible to convert to liquefied natural gas ships, trucks, taxis and all types of internal combustion vehicles and, above all, CFE plants that currently they burn fuel oil by emitting large volumes of toxic particles into the air: with another additional benefit that is a 50% reduction in the cost of fuel.
