Peruvian natural gas liquefaction and export plant at Pampa Melchorita dispatched a cargo of liquefied natural gas to Japan.
According to the shipping data by the state-owned Perupetro, the 173,400-cbm Sevilla Knutsen loaded a cargo on March 23 and set course for Japan.
It is the first cargo the vessel has loaded at the Peruvian facility since October 2010.
It was the fourth cargo dispatched from the facility in March, and the second heading to Japan, with Perupetro not revealing the exact destination of the vessel.
With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 389 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.
