Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita dispatched an LNG cargo to Japan. 

According to the data provided by the state-owned Perupetro, the 170,000 cbm Methane Mickie Harper loaded a cargo on December 10 and set course for Japan.

It is the fifth cargo shipped from Peru to Japan during this year, with the last one delivered to Joetsu terminal in September. It is also the first time Methane Mickie Harper picked up a cargo at the Peruvian facility.

In total, the export plant shipped 434 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.
