We aim to radically improve the environmental and economic condition of many small liquid petroleum fuel consumers in the Caribbean, Central America and the northern parts of South America by substituting dirty and often expensive fuel oil or diesel with clean-burning natural gas.
With two large liquefied natural gas (LNG) receiving terminals, one that currently operates in the Dominican Republic and another that will begin operations in Panama in 2019, AES is ideally positioned to provide competitive prices of LNG in small quantities to smaller-load customers in the region. Both terminals are designed to receive LNG on standard large carriers of 125,000m3 – 175,000m3 and redistribute LNG via re-loading small bulk carriers and ISO containers
Utilizing AES expertise and in partnership with several infrastructure providers, AES can provide entire value chain solutions including LNG supply, logistics, design, build, commission and start-up of an LNG receiving terminal.
AES Dominicana has safely been operating the large scale LNG receiving facility since its inception in 2003. The facility provides gas to AES Dominicana’s two gas fired power plants as well as 50 industrial clients, two third party power plants and 15,000 gas vehicles in the Dominican Republic. As well as serving the domestic market the terminal has capacity to serve the regional market.
AES is currently constructing a second LNG receiving terminal in Panama to be completed in mid-2019, the first of its kind in Central America. With slightly larger capacity than AES Andres, the Colón terminal will serve AES Panama’s own 381MW power plant as well as the domestic and regional demand for gas.
Natural Gas is the cleanest burning fossil fuel and whether you are an electricity generator, industrial company or a transportation company, LNG brings environmental benefits and lowers operational cost and maintenance. Besides the environmental benefits, LNG has historically proven to be cost effective and with less volatility compared to its alternatives.
With shale gas and vast amounts of LNG supply coming online in both the United States and other parts of the world, the future price environment for natural gas is predicted to be favorable for buyer
