Liquefied natural gas (LNG) exports from the Peruvian first and only facility at Pampa Melchorita have resumed following a pipeline rupture earlier this month.

The pipeline, which transports fuel from the Camisea gas fields in the Peruvian jungle to the Pacific Coast, burst on February 3 because of a landslide amid heavy rains in the Cusco region.

According to the shipping data provided by the state-owned Perupetro, LNG carrier Barcelona Knutsen left the Peru liquefaction facility on Monday carrying 170,999 cubic meters of LNG.

The LNG carrier is heading towards South Korea.

This is only the second cargo to leave the facility in February following the departure of the Bilbao Knutsen on February 5 to Spain.

Peru LNG sent out five cargoes in January, two to Japan and Spain, each, while one shipment went to South Korea.

The LNG export facility shipped 445 vessels in total since it started operations in June 2010.

Peru LNG is owned by a consortium of Hunt Oil Company (50%), SK Energy (20%), Shell (20%), and Marubeni (10%).

4th Annual Upstream West Africa Summit 2018

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
