Record Natural Gas Exports from the United States to Mexico

Updated: Aug 28, 2023


In June 2023, a new record was reached in natural gas exports through pipelines from the United States to Mexico.


The exports totaled 6.8 billion cubic feet per day (Bcf/d), which is 0.1 Bcf/d more than the previous record set in June 2021, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA).


In fact, exports exceeded 7.0 Bcf/d on nine days in June, due to the high temperatures that were recorded. Summer is the time when most energy is consumed in Mexico.


According to data from Wood Mackenzie, Mexico's electric sector consumption has grown by an average of 3% each year since 2018.


In 2022, natural gas production in Mexico increased by 14%, which decreased exports from the United States. However, in the first half of 2023, production did not increase, but electricity consumption did grow, which led to an elevation in natural gas imports.
