Last updated: 10 April 2022

During the presentation of the ten milestones of the mining-energy sector in 2021, the Minister of Mines and Energy assured that 2021 will be the year to encourage the sustainable reactivation of Colombia, which will promote equity, development and new opportunities for the country and its regions, in three strategic axes: 1) Energy Transition, 2) Energy security and 3) Mining diversification and formalization.


One of the objective is to increase the number of natural gas users. In 2021, 250,000 families will be able to access this service, and another 25,000 will stop cooking with firewood. This is in line with the goal of 10,361,333 natural gas users outlined in the National Development Plan.
