PLNG, operated by Hunt Oil Company, is one of only two LNG production facilities in Latin America, located in Pampa Melchorita, 170km south of Lima.

De la Rey Venter, MidOcean Energy’s CEO, said, “The completion of this investment is an important milestone in our efforts to create a global, diversified and resilient portfolio of LNG assets.

We look forward to a strong partnership with the PLNG co-venturers and our work towards sustaining PLNG’s positive impact for many years to come.”
