Pair of Qatari LNG cargoes heading to UK

The United Kingdom has booked a couple of Qatari liquefied natural gas cargoes for its two import facilities at the Milford Haven waterway.

The 216,000 cbm LNG carrier Tembek is scheduled to dock at the Dragon LNG terminal at Waterston, Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire on June 24.

The second cargo is heading to the South Hook liquefied natural gas terminal onboard the Al Samriya LNG carrier. The Q-Max vessel with 263,000-cbm cargo capacity is scheduled to arrive at the facility on June 28.

Both cargoes have been lifted at the Ras Laffan liquefied natural gas complex in Qatar the shipping data from the Milford Haven Port Authority shows.

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

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.
