LONDON, December 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

AES Dominicana have just opened Latin America's first LNG distribution
terminal, saving the Dominican Republic over a $billion a year, as it seeks to
cut its dependence on petroleum based power generation. Other Latin American
countries are set to follow suit by securing LNG as their primary source of
energy. Together with the results of the Macroeconomic Impacts report, this
can pave the way forward for the US to go ahead and export LNG to its
neighbours, once the approval and development stages have been given the
"green light".

Freddy Obando, the commercial director for AES Dominicana will be giving an
overview of the company's new strategy at the LNG 360° Forum-Latin America &
Caribbean. Joining him on the special Caribbean LNG Focus day will be:

Indar Maharaj, President, National Gas Company of Trinidad and Tobago Limited
- will disclose strategies for creating market rules that promote investment
in LNG projects

Ernie Megginson, Former LNG Project Manager, Ministry of Science, Technology,
Energy & Mining - will focus on the latest developments for Jamaica's FSRU

Sampo Suvisaari, General Manager, Power Plants, Central America and the
Caribbean, WärtsiläNorth America - gives an insight into transitioning from
heavy fuel oil to LNG

There are a number of podcasts available to download at the website, which
focus on just some of the issues surrounding Latin American & Caribbean LNG.
