Spain: LNG Carrier from Peru Due at Bilbao on July 23
Peru LNG shipped a liquefied natural gas cargo to Spain on Thursday, according to PeruPetro S.A.
The cargo is being hauled by the Ribera del Duero Knutsen, a 173,000 cubic-meter tanker owned by Knutsen OAS Shipping, and it is expected to arrive at Spain’s Bilbao terminal on July 23.
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.
