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%).
