Okra Energy has awarded the EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) contract for Peru’s first small scale natural gas liquefaction facility to Flesan, with more than 30 years’ experience in the construction industry, including civil works, special demolitions, earthworks, anchors, transportation and machinery.
Okra Energy – through its Peruvian subsidiary Lantera Energy SAC – is constructing this first-to-market, high-efficiency natural gas solution in Piura, northern Peru. The LNG plant is 95% complete, and is due to be operational in July. Small scale LNG facilities enable flexible and scalable energy delivery to areas without gas pipeline infrastructure. The entirely of the new facility’s supply of LNG has already been pre-sold to an international gas distributor and a division of the largest steel manufacturer in the Western Hemisphere. Three additional Okra Energy small scale LNG facilities are also currently under contract for delivery in Peru.
According to Okra Energy’s CEO Louis Ravenet, Flesan was chosen from among scores of finalists throughout Chile, Peru and the US. “By selecting Flesan, we are assured that our installation is constructed to the highest standards of both quality and safety, and meets both our deadlines and budget.”
