Peru’s natural gas liquefaction and export facility at Pampa Melchorita shipped two more cargoes to Spain. 

According to the data provided by the state-owned Perupetro, the first cargo dispatched on January 20 was loaded aboard the 2015-built Maran Gas Lindos with a capacity to transport 159,800-cbm. This is the first cargo the vessel loaded at the Peruvian facility.

The second cargo was loaded aboard the 138,000-cbm Golar LNG’s carrier Methane Princess on January 25 and dispatched to Spain.

With the two cargoes, the Pampa Melchorita plant has shipped 5 cargoes in January so far, all five of which have headed to Spain. It is a significant increase in comparison to January 2016, when the facility shipped four cargoes in total, with only one heading to Spain and the remaining three shipped to Mexico.

The 4.45 million tons per year gas liquefaction plant, that started operations in June 2010 has shipped 379 cargoes in total.
