Peru’s only liquefaction facility at Pampa Melchorita shipped two cargoes of liquefied natural gas (LNG) to Spain.

According to the shipping data released by the state-owned Perupetro, the 138 000-cbm Sestao Knutsen LNG carrier left the liquefaction plant on June 30. It was the fifth cargo dispatched from the facility during the month.

The first cargo in the month of July was loaded on Monday, July 3, aboard the 159,800-cbm Maran Gas Efessos that also set course for Spain.

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.

With the two latest cargoes, the facility has dispatched 407 vessels in total since it started operations in June 2010.
