Peru LNG’s 4.45 mtpa liquefaction plant at Pampa Melchorita has shipped five cargoes in January, one shipment more when compared to the month before, according to state-owned Perupetro.
Perupetro’s data shows that four shipments were sent to South Korea and one to the UK during January. The shipments equal about 355,213 tonnes.
The LNG plant may have sent one more cargo in January as the last vessel departed on January 26. Perupetro usually enters data a few days after the shipment.
In January 2022, the LNG terminal shipped one cargo on January 31 for a total of six shipments during the month.
In total, the LNG plant sent 702 LNG cargoes since 2010, the 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.
