Peru LNG terminal shipped five cargoes in September

Peru LNG’s liquefaction plant at Pampa Melchorita has shipped five cargoes in September, three shipments more compared to August when it completed planned maintenance.

According to data by state-owned Perupetro, during September the LNG plant sent two shipments each to the UK and France and one cargo to Japan.

The shipments loaded onboard the LNG carriers Maran Gas Roxana, Minerva Psara, Pan Asia, Alicante Knutsen, and Murex equal about 370,518 tonnes.

These five LNG cargoes loaded at the Peru LNG plant in September compare to three cargoes in September last year, while Peru LNG shipped two cargoes in August this year after it completed scheduled maintenance, operator Hunt Oil previously told LNG Prime.

Peru LNG shipped 41 LNG cargoes during January-September, compared to 37 shipments during the same period last year, the Perupetro data shows.

In total, the 4.45 mtpa LNG plant sent 738 LNG cargoes since 2010, according to the data.

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.
