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 September 7.

The 2009-built LNG tanker owned by Nakilat and operating under a charter agreement with Qatargas, is currently sailing in the North Atlantic off the French coast, according to the marine data provider VesselsValue.
