Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita dispatched a cargo of liquefied natural gas to South Korea. 

The cargo was loaded on December 23 on board the 173,400-cbm LNG carrier Barcelona Knutsen and sent on its way to South Korea, data from the state-owned Perupetro reveals.

The exact destination of the LNG carrier has not been revealed.

This was the fifth cargo loaded at the Pampa Melchorita plant in the month of December and the second cargo to be shipped to South Korea.

With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 372 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.
