Peru's LNG and natural gas plants to halt operations for 3 weeks for maintenance




By Reuters

Petroleumworld 06 20 2018

Peru's sole liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant, Pampa Melchorita, will suspend operations for three weeks starting July 27 for a routine maintenance operation, the consortium that operates the plant, Peru LNG, said on Tuesday.

No LNG will be produced or exported during the maintenance, which occurs every three years, said David Lemor, Peru LNG's director of corporate affairs and communications.

U.S.-based Hunt Oil has a 40 percent stake in Peru LNG, with Royal Dutch Shell Plc, SK Innovation Co Ltd and Japan's Marubeni Corp holding smaller stakes.

Las Malvinas, a natural gas processing plant in southeastern Peru that feeds Pampa Melchorita, will also close for maintenance at around the same time, the company that operates Las Malvinas has said.
