Tidelands Files Permits with Railroad Commission of Texas
Tidelands Oil & Gas' subsidiary, Sonora Pipeline, L.L.C., filed for permits with the Railroad Commission of Texas for the operation and construction of the Progresso International Pipeline and the Mission International Pipeline. These international pipelines will link gas supply in Texas to gas markets in Mexico.
Both the Progresso International Pipeline and Mission International Pipeline will be 30" (inches) in diameter and be connected to the pipeline infrastructure and storage/LNG projects proposed by Tidelands' wholly owned subsidiary, Terranova Energia, S. de R.L. de C.V. These pipelines will be operated by Tidelands' subsidiary, Sonora Pipeline, L.L.C., and will interconnect with Sonora's proposed international pipeline crossing.
The Progresso International Pipeline will run from the Rio Grande to Donna Station with potential interconnects with TETCO, Tennessee Gas Pipeline and Texas Gas Services. This line will extend approximately 17 miles into Mexico and 10 miles into the U.S. The Mission International Pipeline will run from the Rio Grande to the Valero Gilmore Plant with potential interconnects with Houston Pipeline, Calpine, Kinder Morgan, El Paso and Gulf Terra. This line will extend approximately 52 miles into Mexico and 25 miles into the U.S.
Both pipelines will each have a maximum capacity to flow 500 million cubic feet of gas per day (MMCFD) and are designed to be bi-directional allowing for the delivery of natural gas from the U.S. into Mexico or vice versa.
Commenting on the permits filed with the Railroad Commission of Texas, President and CEO of Tidelands Oil & Gas Corporation, Michael Ward said, "We are extremely proud that our management team and those with whom we have aligned ourselves have effectuated this permitting process. We continue to build on our established relationships to facilitate the delivery of gas to Mexico and the execution of our business plan."
