Peru LNG shipped a cargo of liquefied natural gas to Thailand on May 9, according to PeruPetro S.A.
The cargo is being hauled by the Castillo de Santisteban, a 173,600 cubic-meter tanker, and it is sailing to Thailand’s Map Ta Phut LNG terminal.
The Peru LNG Project includes two parts: an LNG Plant with a Marine Terminal from which LNG is sent overseas, and a pipeline connected to the existing TgP pipeline to transport natural gas from the connection point in the mountains of Ayacucho to the LNG Plant located on the coast.
Four energy companies form the Peru LNG consortium: Hunt Oil Company of the United States, with a 50% participating interest; SK Energy of South Korea, with a 20% participating interest; Repsol of Spain, also with a 20% participating interest; and Marubeni Corporation of Japan, with a 10% participating interest.
