Finance for gas power projects is starting to come from less traditional sources, but the associated legislation is far from perfect in Brazil and Mexico, heard delegates at Latin Lawyer’s 5th Annual Regional Project Finance Summit, held in Washington, DC last month.

Funding for energy project finance is becoming more diverse in Latin America. Institutional investors are starting to compete with more traditional lenders to finance gas power developments, noted Ivan Oliveros, executive director of Sumitomo Mitsui Banking’s power and renewables department. “Banks are having to adapt to this new reality where institutional investors are really hungry,” he said. “They’re doing things that were not thought to be possible, like going to Argentina and issuing bonds, so I don’t have any doubts that they’re going to play a big role in Brazil and other countries.”
