The Colombian government has finally decided to liquidate the electricity distributor Electricaribe, controlled by Gas Natural Fenosa. The company was intervened by the government last November, as a temporary preventitive measure.
On Tuesday, the Colombian government ordered an intervention in Electricaribe because there was a risk the company could discontinue its services. Electricaribe is an electricity distributor with 2.5 million clients on Colombia’s Caribbean Coast. Gas Natural owns 85%, while the remaining stake is in state hands.
