Peruvian liquefied natural gas (LNG) export facility in Pampa Melchorita cargo count dropped year on year. 

According to the data from the state-owned Perupetro, the facility shipped a total of 56 cargoes in 2018, dropping down from 65 cargoes in the previous year.

The facility’s performance was slightly impacted by the pipeline rupture in February that halted natural gas supplies to the facility, as well as a three-week maintenance shutdown at the end of July and early August.

The last cargo of the year was shipped on December 29, heading towards the Gate LNG import facility in the Port of Rotterdam. The cargo has been loaded on the 145,000-cbm Methane Shirley Elisabeth.

The facility has also shipped its first cargo of 2019 on January 5, onboard the 173,600-cbm Castillo de Santisteban to South Korea.

In total, the export plant shipped 496 cargoes 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.
