QatarEnergy delivers 1,000th LNG cargo to UK’s South Hook terminal

LNG producer QatarEnergy LNG, previously known as Qatargas, has delivered the 1,000th LNG shipment to the South Hook LNG terminal at Milford Haven in the United Kingdom.

State-owned QatarEnergy said that its unit QatarEnergy LNG delivered the milestone shipment with the Q-Max LNG carrier Mozah, which already has another landmark achievement to its name: the 10,000th LNG cargo from Ras Laffan Port in 2006.

QatarEnergy LNG charters the 2008-built 266,253-cbm LNG carrier from Qatar’s Nakilat.

The 345 metes long LNG carrier is currently the world’s largest LNG vessel, along other Nakilat’s Q-Max vessels.

With the arrival of the 1,000th vessel, South Hook terminal has received and processed almost 100 million tonnes of LNG, which is the equivalent of supplying natural gas to every household in the UK for almost 5 years, according to QatarEnergy.

Located on the Pembrokeshire coast near Milford Haven in Wales, the South Hook LNG terminal became commercially operational in 2009 with the arrival of its commissioning cargo on board the Q-Flex LNG carrier Tembek.

The terminal has the capacity to process up to 20 percent of the UK’s needs of natural gas.

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.

Qatar’s energy minister and chief executive of QatarEnergy, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, said the South Hook LNG terminal “symbolizes the importance of Qatari LNG to one of the world’s most dynamic and vibrant economies, as well as the long and historic relations that tie Qatar and the UK.”
