Okra Energy has awarded the power generation contract for Peru's first small scale natural gas liquefaction facility to Flesan Energia SAC, independent power production (IPP) specialists in end-user gas power generation solutions.
Small scale LNG facilities enable flexible and scalable energy delivery to areas without gas pipeline infrastructure. Okra Energy – through its Peruvian subsidiary Lantera Energy SAC – is finalising construction of its benchmark facility in Piura, located in northern Peru. The LNG plant is due to be operational by 1 July.
Under this long-term power purchase agreement (PPA), Flesan Energia, headquartered in Lima, is providing the installation and operation of gensets with the combined capacity of 2.8 MW for Okra Energy's LNG site in Colan, providing secure and reliable power to this first-to-market, high-efficiency natural gas solution for remote areas.
According to Okra Energy's CEO Louis Ravenet, Flesan was chosen from among more than 30 contenders throughout Chile, Peru, and the US. "By selecting Flesan Energia, we're able to provide a higher level of energy security to our clients due to Flesan's 24/7 supervision, maintenance and servicing of this critical component of an LNG facility."
