Background

The Ilo LNG terminal and liquefaction facility was initially proposed as part of the "Ilo Declaration" signed by Peruvian president Martín Vizcarra and Bolivian president Evo Morales in June 2019.[2] The agreement calls for development of the Bolivia–Peru Gas Pipeline, which would transport natural gas from Bolivia's Tarija gas fields to customers in southern Peru.[3] Gas transported through the pipeline would ultimately reach Ilo on Peru's Pacific coast, where it would be liquefied for eventual shipment to customers in Asian countries including India and China.[4][5] The facility would have an initial liquefaction capacity of 25,000 cubic meters per day.[1] Gas for the terminal would also potentially be supplied by Peru's proposed Southern Gas Pipeline.[1]
