Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita dispatched its first liquefied natural gas cargo in October.

According to the data released by the state-owned Perupetro, the Methane Nile Eagle tanker capable of transporting 145,598 cubic meters of liquefied natural gas departed the terminal on October 7, and set course for Spain.

This is only the third time Methane Nile Eagle has loaded a cargo at the Pampa Melchorita facility

In total, the export plant shipped 422 cargoes 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.
