Background

The project aims to develop an LNG import terminal and a gas-fired power plant on the Pacific Coast of Colombia to supply natural gas and electricity to southwestern and central Colombia. Aguadulce LNG, S.A.S., is a private company established to develop this project.[1] The proposed terminal would include an FSRU with a storage capacity of 160,000 m3, along with a 400 MW simple cycle gas turbine power plant, which would later be upgraded to a combined cycle plant.[2]

As of May 2021, the U.S. Trade and Development Agency (USTDA) is looking for contractors to conduct a feasibility study.[1]

The Aguadulce project is distinct from the Pacific LNG Terminal, a separate project proposed by the Colombian government for a different location on the Bay of Buenaventura.[2]
