Peru LNG’s liquefaction plant at Pampa Melchorita has shipped four liquefied natural gas cargoes in October, one shipment less compared to September.
According to data by state-owned Perupetro, during September the LNG plant sent all off the shipments to the UK.
The shipments loaded onboard the LNG carriers Methane Patricia Camila, Huelva Knutsen, Paris Knutsen, and Maran Gas Amphipolis equal about 252,309 tonnes, the data shows.
These four LNG cargoes loaded at the Peru LNG plant in October compare to five cargoes in October last year, while Peru LNG shipped five cargoes (370,518 tonnes) in September this year.
Peru LNG shipped 45 LNG cargoes during January-October, compared to 42 shipments during the same period last year, the Perupetro data shows.
The 4.45 mtpa LNG plant has sent more than 742 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.
