TransCanada Topolobampo Pipeline

TransCanada announced, June 29, 2018, entry into service of its Topolobampo natural gas pipeline in northern Mexico. The Topolobampo Pipeline, which interconnects with TransCanada’s Mazatlán Pipeline to create the El Encino-Mazatlán system, was 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 was built using state-of-the-art technology and innovative construction techniques. The 560 km (348 mile) pipeline connects the states of Chihuahua and Sinaloa, supplying numerous communities along the way.

In support of the Secretariat of Economic Development (Sedeco) of Sinaloa, TransCanada 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 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.
