Peruvian liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Pampa Melchorita shipped four cargoes during the month of September.

The plant is slowly picking up the activity following a three-week maintenance in July-September.

Out of the four cargoes, two were dispatched to Spain and one to Australia and the Netherlands each, data from the state-owned Perupetro shows.

In terms of volumes, the four cargoes amounted to 595,670 tons of the chilled fuel.

First cargo was dispatched on September 9, onboard the 170,000-cbm Methane Mickie Harper with the last one being the Maran Gas Lindos 159,800-cbm that left the plant on September 26.

With the four September cargoes, the facility’s total rose to 478 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.
