Our Story

Over the last years in Colombia, several climate events such as “El Niño” which have occurred between 2009-2010 and between 2015-2016, have forced the government to review the natural gas supply sources for the coming years as well as its offer in general. This, in order to avoid the possibility of gas shortage which can eventually cause an electrical power rationing, as 30% of the energy produced in the country is generated by thermal plants using natural gas as main fuel.

On this revision, it was born the need to build a regasification plant in order to increase natural gas supply in the country and especially as an option to the energy sector. Through its Resolution 062 of 2013, the Energy and Gas Regulation Commission (CREG acronym in Spanish) stablished the alignments for thermal Generators that want to carry out reliability of electrical energy with LNG.

This is why according to the alignments of the regulation above, the thermal group (GT) was stablished in 2015 by Termocandelaria S.C.A. E.S.P., Termobarranquilla S.A. E.S.P. and Prime Termoflores S.A.S E.S.P. This group further created Calamarí LNG S.A. E.S.P. to serve as the commercial and operational entity that represents them before SPEC LNG S.A. E.S.P. in LNG supply business.
