At least 17 new port terminals are planned over the next few years in Colombia.

According to the Cámara Colombiana de la Infraestructura, or Colombian Chamber of Infrastructure, three tenders have already been made, a further eight have agreed terms and conditions prior to a tender and six are in the final stage of agreeing terms and conditions.

Three of the ports are privately owned and 14 are in the public sector, with the majority either multipurpose facilities or aimed at various kinds of fuel handling.

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.
