For over 10 years, the Dominican Republic has counted natural gas as an important fuel source for its energy matrix. Since the opening of the AES Andres terminal in 2003, importation of liquefied natural gas (LNG) has catapulted gas‐fired power generation to almost one‐third of installed capacity.

According to a study by AES, fuel oil comprises 85% of power generation in the region.
