Gallina's cargo was the sixth shipment dispatched from the facility during the month of November, the data shows.

All cargoes loaded during the month, except the Solaris LNG were dispatched to Spain.

With the latest cargo, Peru’s LNG export facility shipped 367 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.
