Peru LNG ships first October cargo

Peru LNG has shipped the first liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo from its plant at Pampa Melchorita in October, according to state-owned Perupetro.

Perupetro’s data shows that the 174,000-cbm LNG carrier GasLog Genoa left Peru LNG’s 4.45 mtpa liquefaction plant on October 7 to Canada.

Its AIS data provided by VesselsValue reveals that the LNG carrier was on Monday near Balboa, Panama City, located at the Pacific entrance to the Panama Canal.

Prior to this shipment, the Peru LNG plant sent cargoes onboard the 138,000-cbm LNG carrier Bilbao Knutsen and the 135,400-cbm Seapeak Madrid in September.

Bilbao Knutsen is on its way to the UK, while Seapeak Madrid is heading towards Spain, Perupetro’s data shows.

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 685 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.
