Peru ships LNG to China, Mexico
Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita recently dispatched two cargoes of liquefied natural gas to China and Mexico.
Methane Alison Victoria, the 2007-built LNG carrier capable of transporting 145,000 cubic meters of the chilled gas, departed from the export plant on May 2 and set course for China.
State-owned Perupetro has not revealed the exact destination of the vessel, first to head for China since June 2011.
The second cargo was shipped on May 5 to Mexico aboard the 136,600 cbm LNG carrier Galea. The carrier is probably heading for the Manzanillo LNG terminal in the Colima state.
With the two latest cargoes, Peru shipped a total of 325 cargoes of liquefied natural gas since the facility began operations in June 2010.
