Ledwood nets South Hook LNG contract

Ledwood Mechanical Engineering won a contract from UK’s South Hook LNG terminal in Milford Haven.

The Pembroke Dock-based firm said in a statement it had been appointed as the main construction contractor in a project that will unlock commercially available capacity at the LNG facility.

According to Ledwood, the 12-month contract will generate employment for up to 40 project management and trades people at peak times.

The work was won following a competitive tender process and involves the installation, connection and completion of a new submerged combustion vaporizer as part of the incremental capacity project at South Hook LNG.

Ledwood said piping and steel fabrication will be carried out at its headquarters at Pembroke Dock before installation of steelwork, piping and mechanical equipment on-site in Milford Haven.

The company did not provide the price of the contact.

Ledwood was involved with the original construction of the South Hook LNG terminal back in 2009 ahead of it becoming fully operational in 2010.

More than 1,000 LNG cargoes

Last year, QatarEnergy LNG, previously known as Qatargas, delivered the 1,000th LNG shipment to the South Hook LNG terminal.

The LNG terminal has a total processing capacity of 15.6 million tonnes per annum, which is equivalent to around 20 percent of the current UK natural gas demand, according to South Hook LNG.

In order to ensure that the UK continues to benefit from multiple sources of dependable supplies of natural gas, South Hook LNG terminal’s capability is being reinforced to ensure that it can deliver natural gas at maximum capacity, and for extended periods of time, it previously said.

This will involve the reinforcement and installation of new equipment at the site, South Hook LNG said.

South Hook LNG currently estimates that the terminal can make available the incremental capacity from the mid-2020s and this schedule aligns with the expected availability of pipeline capacity.

QatarEnergy is the majority shareholder with a 67.5 percent share, ExxonMobil has a 24.15 percent stake, and TotalEnergies has an 8.35 percent stake in the LNG terminal.
