Liquefied natural gas terminals located at the United Kingdom’s Milford Haven waterway are set to receive a cargo each during the week. 

The Dragon LNG terminal is scheduled to receive a cargo from Nigeria on Tuesday, April 23.

The cargo is being transported onboard the 141,000 cubic meters LNG Akwa Ibom liquefied natural gas carrier.

The second cargo is heading to the South Hook liquefied natural gas terminal. Milford Haven shipping data shows the Q-Max LNG carrier Al Mayeda, transporting a Qatari cargo is scheduled to dock at the facility on April 26.

The Dragon LNG terminal at Waterston, Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire, is owned by Shell (50 percent) and Petronas (50 percent).

The facility has a maximum gas send out rate to the NTS of 7.6 billion cubic meters of gas per annum. The terminal can supply up to 10 percent of the UK’s energy needs.

The South Hook LNG terminal, owned by Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil and Total, can provide around 20 percent of Britain’s natural gas requirements.
