Background

Colbun LNG Terminal is a proposed LNG terminal in Valparaíso, Chile.[1]

The currently shelved floating and regasification terminal was a joint-venture project by Chilean energy companies Colbun and AES Gener. Colbun is owned by the Matte family, while AES Gener is a subsidiary of the US AES energy company.[2] The project had faced delays due to difficulty in finding a proper location for the terminal. Additionally, the expansion of the Quintero LNG Terminal has perhaps made the Colbun LNG Terminal project unnecessary, unless future conditions change. Both Colbun and AES Gener are already supplied with gas from the Quintero LNG Terminal.[3]

In 2014, AES Gener and Colbun cancelled their contract with Norwegian company Höegh, who would've installed the floating LNG ragasification plant, officially shelving the project.[4] There have been no development updates since then, and the project is presumed to be cancelled.
