Abstract

This paper studies the possible impacts of LNG projects on natural gas prices in both sides of the US-Mexico border in California. In California, gas prices are high and the demand is expected to grow. Several projects of LNG facilities have been proposed and have to cope with public opinions against them. In Baja California, four LNG projects are under development given the rising demand forecasted for the next years. After a detailed study of the opportunity for LNG projects, we conclude with an analysis of the fundamentals of the current and future price formation in both sides of the US Mexico border.
