Peruvian natural gas liquefaction and export plant at Pampa Melchorita dispatched a cargo of liquefied natural gas to France last week.

According to the shipping data by the state-owned Perupetro, the 155,000-cbm LNG carrier GasLog Seattle loaded a cargo on March 16 and set course for France.

The vessel is currently on a multi-year time charter with a wholly owned subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell through December 2020.

It was the third cargo dispatched from the facility in March, with Perupetro not revealing the exact destination of the GasLog Seattle.

With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 388 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.
