Peru LNG’s liquefaction plant at Pampa Melchorita has shipped four liquefied natural gas cargoes in November, the same number of shipments as in the previous month.
According to data by state-owned Perupetro, during October the LNG plant sent three shipments to the UK and one to Spain.
The shipments loaded onboard the LNG carriers Kool Baltic, SM Albatross, Maran Gas Amphipolis, and Maran Gas Olympias equal about 272,021 tonnes, the data shows.
These four LNG cargoes loaded at the Peru LNG plant in October compare to four cargoes in November last year, while Peru LNG shipped four cargoes (252,309 tonnes) in October this year.
Peru LNG shipped 49 LNG cargoes during January-November, compared to 46 shipments during the same period last year, the Perupetro data shows.
The 4.45 mtpa LNG plant has sent about 746 LNG cargoes since 2010, according to the data. However, some of the same shipments in the list are included two or three times.
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.
