Q-Max bound for South Hook LNG terminal
South Hook LNG terminal on the shores of Milford Haven waterway is scheduled to receive a Qatari cargo of liquefied natural gas next week.
According to the shipping data by the Milford Haven Port Authority, the 266,000-cbm Q-Max LNG carrier Al Mafyar is set to dock at the South Hook terminal’s jetty on July 10.
The 2009-built LNG tanker owned by Nakilat and operating under a charter agreement with Qatargas, is currently sailing off the east coast of Morocco, according to the marine data provider VesselsValue.
The vessel has taken a long trip around the African continent following the geopolitical dispute between Qatar and its neighbors despite the Suez Canal Authority saying, Qatar-flagged vessels are allowed to transit the canal. This has been proven by the Q-Max Aamira that is set to deliver it’s cargo to the South Hook LNG terminal on July 7.
The South Hook terminal owned by Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil and Total SA can process 15.6 million tons of LNG a year and is capable of delivering 21 billion cubic meters of gas a year into the UK’s national transmission system.
