Peru LNG ships two cargoes after maintenance

Peru LNG’s liquefaction plant at Pampa Melchorita has shipped two cargoes in August after it completed scheduled maintenance, according to operator Hunt Oil.

Perupetro’s data previously showed that the 4.45 mtpa LNG terminal shipped four cargoes in July, with the last shipment leaving the facility on July 25 onboard the 174,000-cbm SM Bluebird.

The 2022-built vessel, owned by Korea Line and chartered by Shell, delivered this cargo to Elengy’s Montoir LNG terminal in France, its AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows.

Following this shipment, the Peru LNG plant did not send any cargoes until August 20, Perupetro’s data shows.

The 2013-built 173,673-cbm, Castillo de Santisteban, owned by Elcano, is heading to Saint John, Canada, the data shows.

“The Peru LNG plant was shut down in early August for scheduled maintenance, but it is back online and operating well,” a spokesman for US-based Hunt Oil told LNG Prime via email.

In addition to the cargo which left on August 20, the plant “actually had another dispatch this past weekend,” the spokesman said.

The vessel in question is Methane Julia Louise, its AIS data shows. GasLog’s 170,000-cbm LNG carrier left the LNG plant on August 28 and is heading toward the UK.

Also, the 2022-built 174,000-cbm, Alicante Knutsen, owned by Knutsen and chartered by Shell, is also on its way to the Peru LNG terminal and is expected to arrive there during the weekend, its AIS data shows.

733 LNG cargoes

Including the second cargo in August, Peru LNG shipped 36 LNG cargoes during January-August.

This compares to 35 shipments during the same period last year, according to Perupetro’s data.

In total, the LNG plant sent 733 LNG cargoes since 2010.

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.
