Topolobampo Pipeline Project


The Topolobampo Pipeline Project, which interconnects with TransCanada’s Mazatlán Pipeline Project to create the El Encino- Mazatlán system, is one of the most ambitious and challenging natural gas pipeline projects in the country’s history.

Due to the geographical challenges posed by crossing the Sierra Tarahumara, the project is being built using state-of-the-art technology and innovative construction techniques. When complete, the 560 km (348 mile) pipeline will help connect the states of Chihuahua and Sinaloa, supplying numerous communities along the way.

Supporting Indigenous Education

As part of our offer of support to the state of Sinaloa, TransCanada helped remodel the Comprehensive Training Center for the Work of the State of Sinaloa to help local children learn yoreme, the Indigenous language of the region.



Improving Standards Of Living

In support of the Secretariat of Economic Development (Sedeco) of Sinaloa, TransCanada has donated more than $40 million pesos ($2.82 million) for social programs in the state.



Installing Solar Panels In Remote Communities

During construction of the Topolobampo Pipeline, we installed solar panels in the village of San Elias – bringing electricity to the community for the first time in its history



Building Fresh Water Infrastructure

We also donated materials used by the residents of the village of La Noria to build a small dam that now provides fresh water to more than 1,000 people.



Replanting 30,000 Plants

During construction of the Topolobampo route, we moved and protected tens of thousands of threatened native plants.
