Our history

PERU LNG was created on March 24, 2003 with the purpose of developing, building, and operating a liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant.

The company’s infrastructure includes a processing plant and its related facilities, marine facilities for LNG carriers and a 408 km pipeline.

To date, PERU LNG is the largest private investment in hydrocarbons made in the history of the country (3,800 million USD). During its construction phase, the company generated over 20 thousand jobs and contributed 2% to the GDP growth.
