For the second consecutive year, a student at the National University of Engineering will supplement his undergraduate studies at the University of Oklahoma (USA), thanks to the PERU LNG scholarship. On this occasion, Alexander Rodríguez Castillo, student of the School of Mechanical Engineering, was selected after passing a demanding test of knowledge and various academic interviews.

The PERU LNG Scholarship will give Alexander Rodriguez the opportunity to acquire new knowledge during one year in one of the highly recognized universities in the field of oil and gas. In addition, after completing his studies, he will be able to form part of the team which operates PERU LNG’s Melchorita Plant, the fist natural gas liquefaction plant in South America.

“Due to the high demand for qualified personnel, companies can contribute by providing necessary training here or abroad, with the vision of achieving that talent will return and contribute to our industries. This year we again reward the effort and academic talent, and this time hand in hand with the Fulbright Commission, which is also supporting us in this process”, said Igor Salazar, General Manager of PERU LNG.

Last year, the student of Petrochemical Engineering, Luis Enrique Tello Pretell, was the first to obtain the PERU LNG scholarship and after a year at Oklahoma, he now forms part of the Melchorita plant operations team.

The PERU LNG scholarship is an educational incentive aimed at young students enrolled in the last semester in the fields of Mechanical Engineering, Petrochemistry, Chemistry and Electronics. The aim is to support them so that they can continue their professional training in internationally recognized academic institutions so that they will contribute to the further development of the country.

PERU LNG is the company that since 2010 is operating the first gas liquefaction plant in South America located at kilometer marker 170 of the South Pan-American Highway.
