Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita shipped its second cargo of the month earlier this week.
Shell’s Gemmata LNG carrier with a capacity of 138,104-cbm loaded a cargo on Tuesday, March 14 and set course for Spain.
The state-owned Perupetro did not reveal the exact destination of the vessel.
With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 387 vessels in total, since it started operations in June 2010.
The 4.45 million tons per year gas liquefaction plant is located 170 kilometers south of Lima and receives gas via a 408-kilometer pipeline built across the Andes.
