Elcapitalfinanciero.com reports that "... The agreement allows the use of a clean fossil fuel to provide energy solutions to all types of industry such as food, beverage, manufacturing in general, as well as energy producers, shops, land and sea transport, and the hotel industry."

"... Miguel Bolinaga, president of AES in Panama, said 'we are pleased with this important LNG distribution agreement that will allow us, together with our new strategic partner, to make available to Panama and Costa Rica a new fuel that will open new opportunities for the local and regional economy'."
