AES, via AES Colon, has a 50.1 percent stake in the Costa Norte LNG import terminal in Colon. The other 49.9 percent share belongs to Inversiones Bahia.

Panama’s first LNG import terminal consists of a 180,000-cbm tank and a 381 MW combined cycle power plant.

The tank reached commercial operations in 2019 allowing Panama to become a regional LNG distribution hub.

To remind, AES has invested a total of $1.15 billion in the facility located near the Atlantic entrance of the Panama Canal.
