This compares to five cargoes and about 355,213 tonnes in January this year, while Peru LNG also sent five cargoes in February 2022.
In addition, Peru LNG shipped one LNG cargo to Japan and one shipment to China during March, according to the data.
In total, the 4.45 mtpa LNG plant sent 733 LNG cargoes since 2010, the data shows.
