Thank you... and I have a couple of more questions with these craze prepositions. Thanks in advance.
Explanation: I would say "Currently the two main supply sources of natural gas in Colombia are La Guajira off shore field on the North Coast..." sounds ok to me. I agree with Tim that "off the north coast" sounds better but as he says, you've already used "off shore".
