Peru LNG shipped six cargoes in January

Peru LNG’s 4.45 mtpa liquefaction plant at Pampa Melchorita shipped six cargoes in January, the same as in the month before, according to state-owned Perupetro.

Perupetro’s data shows that during January the LNG export plant had shipped two cargoes each to the UK and Japan, and one cargo each to South Korea and Taiwan.

This totaled about 425,186 tonnes and compares to four cargoes in January 2021, or 290,229 tonnes, the data shows. It was also a bit higher than 411,059 tonnes and six cargoes in the prior month.

Peru LNG’s exports dropped considerably last year but the facility was offline for about two months during July and August due to repairs on a compressor.

In total, the facility sent 652 LNG cargoes since 2010, Perupetro’s data shows.

US-based Hunt Oil holds a 50 percent operating stake in the 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.
