Peru ships LNG cargoes to Spain, Mexico
Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita shipped two cargoes to Spain and one to Mexico since the start of the month.
According to the data by the state-owned Perupetro, the first August cargo from the $4 billion liquefaction plant was loaded aboard the Gemmata LNG carrier with a capacity of 138,104 cubic meters, heading for Spain.
On August 6, the second cargo with its final destination in Spain left the facility. The cargo is being hauled aboard the 145,500-cbm LNG carrier Hispania Spirit.
Between the two cargoes heading for Spain, Peru LNG dispatched the 135,072-cbm LNG carrier Gallina on August 4, to Mexico.
With the three cargos, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 412 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.
