The last cargo of the month was dispatched on July 26, onboard the 145,000-cbm Methane Shirley Elisabeth and headed for Spain, data from the state-owned Perupetro shows.

Out of the six cargoes, two were shipped to Spain, two landed in South Korea with one cargo each heading for Japan and Mexico.

In terms of volumes, the plant dispatched 867,227 cubic meters of the chilled fuel, with 287,021 cubic meters landing in South Korea, followed by 275,059 cubic meters dispatched to Spain.
