Peru LNG sent five cargoes in October

Peru LNG’s 4.45 mtpa liquefaction plant at Pampa Melchorita has shipped five cargoes in October, two more compared to the month before, according to state-owned Perupetro.

Perupetro’s data shows that one shipment was sent to Canada, two to Spain, and two the United Kingdom, and the five cargoes equal about 344,942 million tonnes.

This compares to four LNG cargoes in the same month last year and 294,470 million tonnes.

Peru LNG shipped three LNG cargoes in August following a planned maintenance shutdown in July.

The plant at Pampa Melchorita shipped five cargoes in June, the same as in the month before.

Issues with feed gas affected LNG shipments from the Peru LNG plant in August and September.

Peru’s energy and mines ministry announced on August 11 an emergency measure to allow it to prioritize domestic natural gas supplies due to reduced supplies from Pluspetrol’s Las Malvinas natural gas plant.

Due to necessary repairs at the plant which feeds the LNG facility, this measure first lasted from August 11 to August 24, but it was extended to September 20 due to additional works.

In total, the LNG plant sent 689 LNG cargoes since 2010, Perupetro’s data shows.

US-based Hunt Oil holds a 50 percent operating stake in the Pampa Melchorita LNG plant, while SK and Marubeni have 20 percent and 10 percent, respectively.

LNG giant Shell also holds a 20 percent stake and takes all the volumes produced at the facility.
