Aguadulce LNG, S.A.S. (the “Grantee) invites submission of qualifications and proposal data (collectively referred to as the “Proposal”) from interested U.S. firms that are qualified on the basis of experience and capability to execute a feasibility study (the “Feasibility Study”) to support the development of a liquefied natural gas (“LNG”) import terminal and a gas-fired power plant on Colombia’s Pacific coast.
The Project aims to develop an LNG import terminal and a gas-fired power plant on the Pacific Coast to supply natural gas and provide reliable electricity in southwestern and central Colombia.
About the Grantee
The Grantee is Aguadulce LNG, S.A.S., which is a private company established to develop this Project.
About the Feasibility Study
This Feasibility Study will verify the suitability of the proposed project site, define the project design requirements, estimate the capital and operating costs, assess the financial viability, define the financing options, and prepare a detailed implementation and construction plan for the Project. While local utility and industrial customers are anticipated to purchase the electricity produced by the gas-fired power plant, the Feasibility Study will also examine the possibility of connecting to Colombia’s national grid when additional substation infrastructure is developed in the region.
The U.S. firm selected will be paid in U.S. dollars from a $990,521 grant to the Grantee from the U.S. Trade and Development Agency.
