Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita dispatched another cargo of liquefied natural gas to Spain. 

The cargo was loaded on December 15 on board the 138 000-cbm LNG carrier Bilbao Knutsen and sent on its way to Spain, data from the state-owned Perupetro reveals.

However, the exact destination of the carrier has not been revealed by Perupetro.

This was the fourth cargo loaded in December at the Pampa Melchorita plant.

With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 371 vessels in total, since it started operations in June 2010.

The 4.45 million tons per year gas liquefaction plant is located 170 kilometers south of Lima and receives gas via a 408-kilometer pipeline built across the Andes.
