Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita shipped a cargo of liquefied natural gas to Spain.
Teekay’s 135,423-cbm LNG carrier Madrid Spirit loaded its cargo and departed on Saturday, May 9, and set course for Spain, according to the shipping data.
However, the State-owned Perupetro did not reveal the exact destination vessel which was the second sent to Spain in May.
With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 398 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.
