Exmar, the Belgian firm which was the main player in the consortium initially selected to roll out Jamaica's liquefied natural gas (LNG) project, has secured a contract to build and operate a similar system in the region.

Pacific Stratus Energy (PSE) Colombia has contracted Exmar to build, operate, and maintain a floating liquefaction regasification and storage unit for the Colombian Caribbean coast.

According to Exmar, this will be the world's first such unit, with a storage capacity of 14,000 cubic meters of LNG.
