The North Baja Pipeline System, acquired in 2009 by TC PipeLines, LP and managed by TransCanada PipeLines Limited, is committed to operating a safe and reliable pipeline and to providing excellent customer service.
The North Baja Pipeline is the 80-mile U.S. portion of an overall 220-mile pipeline initially designed to serve electric-generation load in the Mexican state of Baja California. North Baja Pipeline consists of 30- and 36-inch-diameter pipeline, predominantly in La Paz County, Arizona, and in Riverside and Imperial counties, California. It also includes a compressor station near Ehrenberg, Arizona, and various meter sets and valve stations.
With a recently completed Expansion, the pipeline will continue to serve electric generators but is now poised to be a significant path for entry of LNG-sourced natural gas into markets in southern California and Arizona from Sempra Energy International’s Energia Costa Azul LNG terminal off the coast of Baja California.
