Introducing natural gas and having enough water and quality makes the state attractive to investors.

Mazatlan, Sinaloa.- With a direct investment of 454 million dollars in the first half of the year, Sinaloa  is among the main entities with the most investment , said the economy secretary in the state, Javier Lizárraga Mercado.


In a meeting with the Federation of Chambers of Commerce and Tourism Services, chaired by Carlos Pardini Soberones, he pointed out that the entity has become very attractive for domestic and foreign investors, and this is due to the arrival of natural gas to Sinaloa.

Also, to the water that still has in quantity and quality for its 11 rivers and dams. This moves the economy of Sinaloa.

Lizárraga stressed that large industries are already using gas with great benefits: less pollution, and above all, savings.

The coffee company El Marino, since 2015, which opened the Mazatlan-Durango, was changed to natural gas, which allowed that in addition to having a cleaner, less polluting energy, has achieved savings of between 25 and 35 percent in costs.

CFE uses gas

But undoubtedly, the fact that now the Topolobambo and Mazatlán thermoelectric power plants generate gas energy, translates into a cleaner service.

It has reduced pollution and generated more savings for the parastate.

However, the official stressed that you can not specify the deadline for the population to pay less for the service of electric power, as it would have to establish the CFE, but said there will be a reduction in the cost of the service.


Trade and the tourism sector will be integrated into natural gas, with savings that will be 30 to 40 percent. 

Then it will be domestic use, which with a reduction of 18 to 20 percent of what is currently spent on this service, said the Secretary of Economy in the entity.
