Peruvian natural gas liquefaction and export plant at Pampa Melchorita dispatched a cargo of liquefied natural gas to China.
According to the shipping data by the state-owned Perupetro, the 173,400-cbm Sevilla Knutsen loaded a cargo on November 27 and set course for China.
It is only the second cargo the vessel has loaded at the Peruvian facility in 2017.
It was the sixth cargo shipped from the facility in November and the first to go to a destination other than Spain, with Perupetro not revealing the exact destination of the vessel.
With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 432 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.
