Peru Ships LNG Cargo to Spain
Peru LNG shipped a cargo of liquefied natural gas to Spain on Wednesday, according to PeruPetro S.A.
The cargo is being hauled by the Valencia Knutsen, a 173.400 cubic-meter tanker operated by Knutsen OAS Shipping, and it is due to arrive at the Barcelona LNG terminal on January 3.
The Peru LNG project includes two parts: an LNG Plant with a Marine Terminal from which LNG is sent overseas, and a pipeline connected to the existing TgP pipeline to transport natural gas from the connection point in the mountains of Ayacucho to the LNG Plant located on the coast.
Four energy companies form the Peru LNG consortium: Hunt Oil Company of the United States, with a 50% participating interest; SK Energy of South Korea, with a 20% participating interest; Repsol of Spain, also with a 20% participating interest; and Marubeni Corporation of Japan, with a 10% participating interest.
