Project Details


The project involves the construction of a 150ha multi-purpose terminal complex on Buenaventura bay. It will have liquid hydrocarbons terminals (hydrocarbons and ethanol) and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminals. The complex will also receive containers and general cargo. The project includes an 80MW combined-cycle power station. It is expected the complex will also facilitate the export of propane and butane to countries on the Pacific coast. The port is administered under a 20-year concession contract by the Colombian company Grupo Empresarial del Pacífico S.A. (Gepsa), which was extended to 2032. The firm developing the project is Puerto, Inversiones y Obras S.A.S. (PIO SAS), part of the Gepsa group.
