Allseas has been awarded a substantial construction contract by TC Energy for a major offshore pipeline delivering natural gas to southeast Mexico.

Our state-of-the-art pipelay vessels will install the 36-inch pipeline, which will run approximately 700-kilometres south along the coast from Tuxpan connecting the ports of Coatzacoalcos and Dos Bocas.

The Southeast Gateway pipeline is the first major natural gas infrastructure project to emerge from a new strategic alliance between TC Energy and Mexicoโ€™s state utility CFE.

Allseas is pleased to be playing a key role in this strategic project, which will serve the growing need for safe, reliable and affordable energy supply in the southeast region of Mexico.

Pipelay is expected to commence end of 2023, with the pipeline in service by the mid-2025.

Southeast Gateway is Allseas second pipeline in Mexico. In 2017, we installed the 685 km-long Sur de Texas-Tuxpan pipeline, which moves natural gas supply from basins in Texas to southern Mexico.
