Gas Natural Fenosa is the main gas distribution operator in Mexico where it operates in eight of the country's states, including the capital, Mexico City. The company also plays a role in the electricity generation sector.
The energy company operates in Mexico's gas distribution market, in which it has a 71.75% share.
Gas Natural México is present in seven of the 14 geographical distribution areas of the country. The Group in Mexico presently has more than 1,300,000 customers and a distribution network of almost 17,000 km.
Gas Natural México started its activity in 1997, after winning the concession to distribute natural gas in the area of Toluca (Mexico State). Year after year, the company has extended to different parts of the country. In 2000, it acquired 100% equity of Metrogas, enabling it to manage natural gas distribution in the country's capital, Mexico City, through Gas Natural Metrogas.
The group also has a subsidiary called Gas Natural Servicios in Mexico, which offers gas-related services and distributes natural gas for vehicles.
The company is present in electricity generation activities in Mexico, where it is one of the main independent operators. The combined cycle power station plants owned by the company produced just over 14,600 GWh in 2011.
In June 2010, Gas Natural Fenosa finalised the divestment process of its electricity generation business in Mexico, which represented 2,233 MW less installed capacity.
Similarly, the North Durango station went into operation last year, which increased electricity production by 1,770 GWh.
The Mexican subsidiary of Gas Natural Fenosa is also planning to look into opportunities to develop wind energy generation projects in the country.
