El Salvador LNG Terminal was a proposed LNG terminal in La Unión, El Salvador.[2] The project is now cancelled. The Houston-based energy company Cutuco and Fonseca Energy announced in 2007 a planned construction of a 520 MW power plant and LNG terminal at the port of La Union, in El Salvador[3] The terminal was to contain a tank with a capacity 160,000 cubic meters and then expand in the second phase up to 320,000 cubic meters.[4] The proposal was consistently delayed and pushed back until 2016. Since then, the project has been officially cancelled due to local resistance and municipal opposition.[5]
