It is the first natural gas liquefaction plant in South America. In December 2006, the PERU LNG project was officially launched. The project began in 2000, when Peru's government awarded Hunt Oil Company and its partners the contract to develop the upstream portion of one of South America's largest natural gas resources, the Camisea field.

In November 1930, H. L. Hunt acquired the Daisy Bradford No. 3 from J. M. “Dad” Joiner near Kilgore, Texas. H.L. Hunt bought the lease out “lock, stock and barrel,” financing the deal with a first-of-its-kind agreement to make payments from future “down-the-hole” production. The Bradford No. 3 turned out to be the discovery well of the great East Texas oil field, which, at the time, was the greatest oil field in the world. Hunt Oil Company was incorporated in Delaware on December 18, 1934. The first office was located in Tyler, Texas. The company moved to Dallas in 1937. Condition: Good.
