Colombia is pinning its hopes on LNG to feed its gas-to-power plants in coming years, but the sector is set to remain relatively small. Total installed gas-to-power capacity declined from 2.48 GW in 2010 to 2.13 GW in 2015. The share of thermoelectric capacity in Colombia’s power mix has remained around 30% over the past six years thanks to the addition of coal-fired power.
