Peru’s LNG export facility at Pampa Melchorita dispatched another cargo of the chilled gas to Mexico.
According to Perupetro, the 170,200 cbm SCF Mitre LNG carrier departed from the Peruvian facility on May 31.
Like the two previous shipments onboard Asia Excellence and Valencia Knutsen LNG carriers, SCF Mitre delivered its cargo to Mexico’s Manzanillo terminal.
Peru’s facility has an estimated annual production capacity of 4.4 million tons of LNG. The complex also consists of two storage tanks, each with a capacity of 130,000 cubic meters of LNG, a marine terminal and a supply pipeline.
With these three shipments in May, the LNG plant dispatched 271 cargoes in total since it started operations in June 2010.
