Japanese firm to build US-Mexico gas pipeline

MEXICO CITY -- Mexico's president says a Japanese company has been tapped to build a pipeline to import U.S. natural gas through Arizona.

President Enrique Pena Nieto is visiting Japan, where he made the announcement about the $460 million project Tuesday.

Japan's Mitsui Corporation will build the pipeline, which will run from Tucson to the Mexican border.

The president's office said in a brief statement the pipeline will be able to carry 770 million cubic feet of gas per day.

Mexico's gas network already includes a number of active connections with the United States.

Neither Pemex nor the president's office would provide any other details on the deal.
