Yea, ATCO could be involved. Silva said “We are working on a plan that will include a public-private association between the CFE, a Canadian company that we can’t name at this time for compliance reasons, a Mexican group known as Grupo Fox, and the government of Tamaulipas.”

And yes, waiting is all we can do. We should all be experts in that by now.

CYDSA also mentioned at the bottom here:

https://investorshub.advfn.com/boards/read_msg.aspx?message_id=173257601

"The problem is that in Mexico there is no consolidated market in the matter in Mexico. Although some companies have raised their hands for this type of project, Rosanety Barrios points out that they do not have any experience in the matter, so they would have to turn to international companies.

For example, Cydsa, a company from Monterrey, has shown interest in entering the natural gas storage market. Until now the company has developed some projects with Pemex, but for LP gas."

I don't think they would be competition for the Brasil field. They seem to be operating in a different sphere, that being liquefied petroleum gas. Check out this article from earlier this month.

Cydsa Sees Opportunity for Mexican Mont Belvieu

BY ADAM WILLIAMS
February 9, 2024

A glaring weak spot in the Mexico natural gas industry is the country’s lack of storage capacity. The issue is repeatedly discussed and considered a risk to national energy security, as Mexico has less than two days’ worth of storage capacity and is vulnerable to unforeseen weather or geopolitical events.



According to Raul Puente, the Managing Director of Underground Storage for Grupo Cydsa, the Monterrey-based company has identified an opportunity to dramatically increase Mexico’s storage capacity and create the country’s own version of Mont Belvieu, the most important hub for natural gas liquids such as liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) in the United States.

“In the plot of land that we have, where we have the cavern where we store LPG for Pemex TRI since November 2017, we have three caverns that are ready for storage that are developed and have a total of capacity for 8.8 million bbl or, in natural gas terms, 10 Bcf of capacity,” Puente told NGI’s Mexico GPI. “On this same plot of land, we have the possibility to develop up to 10 additional caverns, which would mean 14 total caverns that could store hydrocarbons.”

He added, “The long-term vision we have is to develop a Mont Belvieu, similar to the one outside of Houston.”

Puente has worked as a director at Cydsa since 2015, where he has led the Underground Storage of Hydrocarbons business unit and actively participated in starting the LPG storage commercial operation. He is also a member of the Energy Commission of CAINTRA, which represents industrialists in Nuevo León state, and Vice President of Natural Gas in the National Energy Commission of Mexican employers confederation COPARMEX.

Previously, Puente worked as a director at Aon México and as a risk manager at building materials conglomerate Cemex. He holds a Master’s degree in business administration from the Tecnológico de Monterrey, where he also earned his bachelor’s degree in chemical engineering, and an MBA from the University of Texas in Austin.


Editor’s Note: NGI’s Mexico Gas Price Index, a leading tracker of Mexico’s natural gas market reform, offers the following Q&A column as part of a series of periodic interviews with market experts of natural gas in Mexico. Puente is the 120th expert to participate in the series.

NGI: In a recent energy conference in Monterrey, you spoke about Grupo Cydsa’s role in the energy sector and the company’s natural gas and hydrocarbons storage projects. Can you tell us some about the company and the current projects in the energy industry?

Puente: Grupo Cydsa has five distinct business lines. We have three businesses that are specialized in chemical operations. The first is salt, which is extracted from the earth and where we conduct what is known as solution mining. And that’s what creates the space beneath the ground and the cavity which we later use as a cavern that provides an option for hydrocarbons storage. So, salt — for industrial and consumption purposes — is a main area of our business. Our brand, La Fina, is very visible and well known in Mexico and can be found just about anywhere in the country.

We also have IQUISA, which stands for Industria Quimica del Istmo. In IQUISA, we take the salt and separate the sodium — the Na— from the chlorine — the Cl. We use the sodium to make caustic soda and chlorine, which has multiple applications. IQUISA has five plants throughout the country, three that make the caustic soda and chlorine, and two more that make specialty products that are derived from the caustic soda and chlorine.

In Monterrey, we also have Quimobasicos, a plant of refrigerant gasses for the automotive industry and the residential industry. We produce some of the gasses and source the rest from our partner Honeywell.

In the energy sector, Cydsa has two cogeneration plants, and we generate electricity that is used by IQUISA to do the electrolysis to separate the sodium from the chlorine. The steam that is produced by the cogeneration plants is used in the salt business to evaporate and separate the salt from the water to create the final product. We have a very interesting vertical integration there.

The newest business Grupo Cydsa has in the energy sector is the business of underground storage. The business started with the storage of LPG with a contract that we signed with Pemex and started commercial operation in 2017. The cogeneration plants began in 2014 and 2016, while the other Grupo Cydsa business lines have been around and existed for 79 years.

Our hydrocarbons underground storage business began commercial operation with Pemex TRI in November 2017. We currently have a cavern that stores LP Gas with a total capacity of 1.8 million bbl, which is completely reserved by Pemex TRI. We provide storage of this critical hydrocarbon, and we are a very strategic and relevant link in the logistic value chain that Pemex TRI has, given the company’s issues with fuel theft and other potential operational problems that they might face. The storage cavern is the buffer that allows Pemex TRI to guarantee continuity in the supply of LPG.

NGI: In the Monterrey conference, you mentioned that Grupo Cydsa has long-term hydrocarbon storage plans. Can you tell us about the plans the company has?

Puente: The LPG cavern is located between two municipalities that are located about 10 kilometers south of Coatzacoalcos in the state of Veracruz. On that plot of land, the long-term vision we have is to develop a Mont Belvieu, like the one outside of Houston, TX. This would be done in proportion to the land available and would obviously include the realities of the Mexican market, which is distinct from the U.S.

Mont Belvieu has more than 150 caverns and can store…600 million bbl. It’s a monster of an industrial park for storage of liquids. As previously mentioned, we have three caverns that are ready for storage that are developed and have a total capacity of 8.8 million bbl for liquids or, in natural gas terms, 10 Bcf of capacity. So, that’s more than a day’s worth of storage capacity for the country and could be the first steps Mexico takes towards building operational and strategic underground storage.

We made these three caverns on the heels of the momentum that we had after signing the first contract with Pemex TR,I and we saw an opportunity in the medium term to continue to provide opportunities for storage capacity for hydrocarbons. Given our salt business, we are going to permanently continue to extract salt from the earth and create caverns that would be available for underground storage development.

And, on this same plot of land, we have the possibility to develop up to 10 additional caverns, which would mean 14 total caverns that could store hydrocarbons. We anticipate and are hopeful that there will be continued demand for hydrocarbons storage from the energy sector in the area in the near future.

So, in our vision, we see a significant growth opportunity for the development of hydrocarbon storage in our caverns.

NGI: And of the three available caverns you mentioned that Cydsa has for hydrocarbon storage, how are they being utilized currently?

Puente: You could say they are on standby. They are currently full of brine, and we are maintaining them so that they are active and in adequate conditions to receive hydrocarbons in the near future.

NGI: And is Cydsa looking for a partner or an offer to utilize this storage?

Puente: In simple forms, we’re looking to replicate the first storage project we did with Pemex TRI. The first project is a long-term one, anchored by a government entity. This is the only way that someone is going to be willing to invest in a long-term project. This would be through a take-or-pay contract, regulated, with acceptable profit margins, and that is financed.

So, what are we looking for? We are looking for a potential customer that is willing to anchor a long-term project with a 20- to 30-year contract. With this deal, the contract is the source of the repayment and financing is required because it’s a significant investment. The contract provides the certainty required to repay the financing costs, given that it generates a profit that is acceptable, regulated, and that is approved by the regulator and the client.

We’ve had talks with private companies, but the conditions are different. Let’s take Mont Belvieu for example. In Mont Belvieu, that capacity was developed more than 50 years ago. There’s a waiting list for companies that want to enter and reserve capacity in a cavern to store the hydrocarbon of their choice. There are constantly companies entering and leaving, and one company substitutes for another and assumes the capacity space they had reserved. It’s a very active and very liquid market. But in most cases, a single company almost never occupies the entire space available with their capacity alone, and therefore there are multiple players that occupy a cavern to account for the entire capacity available.

So, the only way for a large-scale hydrocarbons storage project to be developed well is for the anchor customer to be a government related entity, such as CENAGAS, Pemex or CFE. This would be a similar model to how all the natural gas transport infrastructure is being done through anchored contracts currently in Mexico.

Sure seems like our friendly friend Jose Ramon Silva is moving forward with storage with or without us..Maybe the CEO of MRGE will enlightenment shareholders with his new open lines of communication..
Surely the clown who talks to CMW,and in his own words ,tries to get him to do certain things, will answer a few questions for shareholders other than issuing buy orders

Yet another article about storage. Hopefully Mexico finally pays this "historical debt" it owes to its people.

Why Mexico needs natgas storage facilities

Bnamericas
Published: Friday, February 09, 2024



Building Mexico’s first natural gas storage project “is a historical debt that this government has with Mexicans,” according to energy expert Gonzalo Monroy, who manages energy consultancy GMEC.

A project to guarantee supply for power plants has been needed for more than 20 years but regulation, bureaucracy and a nonexistent business scheme for its commercialization in the country have hindered progress, Monroy told BNamericas in an interview.

“The big problem is that business models have not been developed, in addition to legal issues. That is the reason why this project has not progressed,” he said, adding that a few issues regarding regulation in the constitution were solved after gas network operator Cenagas was created by the 2013 energy reform.

But despite the natural gas crisis that Mexico experienced in 2021, President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s administration did not prioritize storage. The leftist leader’s term ends in October.

During the February 2021 Uri winter storm, which brought freezing temperatures to North America, factories across Mexico’s northern region – Chihuahua, Coahuila, Tamaulipas and Nuevo Leon states – reported billions in losses due to a reversal in the flow of US natural gas into Mexico.

Natural gas is Mexico’s main fuel source, accounting for 52% of power generation, and about 70% is imported from the US, according to a report from the UN Economic Commission for Latin America and the Caribbean.

In a report published in 2022, economics think thank IMCO suggested three measures to guarantee natgas supply. The first was to carry out studies, the second to build storage facilities and the third to update storage policies.

"The country has only 2.4 days of natural gas storage in three facilities [but in LNG tanks]. This figure is below the average storage days of countries such as Austria (318.3), France (98.8), Italy (93.8) or Spain (34.2)," IMCO said.

The first project

Asked about the possibility that Cenagas could launch a tender next year for the first storage facility designed for natural gas, in the conventional Brasil field of the Burgos basin in northeast state Tamaulipas, Monroy told BNamericas that the work “is urgent.”

According to media reports, Mexican authorities are working on studies to launch the tender. While details are yet to be revealed, Cenagas has projected potential storage capacity of 495 billion cubic feet.

At the Brasil field, Tamaulipas energy development minister José Ramón Silva Arizabalo told news site Energía a Debate in recent days that state authorities are seeking to create a hub of energy projects, known as VolTam. However, federal power company CFE, which was expected to be the state government’s key partner, has not decided on the program’s model, nor has it assigned resources to begin the work.
