Webinars 2017


Central America continues on a path to diversification of its energy matrix with important projects that will move the region away from its traditional oil dependency. In addition to major renewable energy developments, the long anticipated introduction of natural gas into key markets in the region is moving closer to fruition.

Two major liquefied natural gas (LNG) import terminals and associated gas-fired power stations are under development in Panama and El Salvador. These projects will radically change the energy outlook for those countries and the region more broadly particularly as the regional electric market continues to mature.

Located at the El Salvadoran port of Acajutla, the Energía del Pacifico project will bring LNG into the Salvadoran market. The LNG terminal will be anchored by a 378MW natural gas combined cycle power station that will begin delivering electricity to the Salvadoran market in 2020/2021 in accordance with a 355MW tender won in 2013. The project continues on the path to development and signed an LNG supply agreement earlier this year with Shell.

Join us for a webinar presentation featuring Alejandro Alle, Executive Director of Energía del Pacífico (EDP). Alle will present an update on the LNG and power project in El Salvador, insights on the role for natural gas in El Salvador, and the Central American market more broadly.

The webinar will be held Tuesday, November 21 at 12:00pm San Diego (2:00 pm El Salvador; GMT/UTC – 8 hours). Alle’s formal presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
