The Cámara Colombiana de la Infraestructura, or Colombian Chamber of Infrastructure, shows three tenders have already been made, another eight have had preliminary terms agreed to and six are in the final stage of agreeing terms and conditions or awaiting concept approvals.
Of the 17 ports that have planned storage projects, three of the ports are privately owned and the rest are public sector. Most of the ports are multipurpose or have facilities to move hydrocarbons. The cities of Buenaventura and Cartagena are the main beneficiaries.
ExxonMobil is building a $225m petroleum terminal in Cartagena, where Oinsas is to build a dry and liquid bulk terminal. Here, public investment of $21m has just been made.
In Buenaventura, three terminal projects have had terms and conditions agreed, the largest being that at Delta del Río Dagua, where a $246m container and general cargo terminal is to be built.
