According to the Milford Haven Port Authority data, the 217,000-cbm LNG carrier Al Khuwair set of from Qatari port of Ras Laffan and is expected to dock at the South Hook terminal’s jetty on August 3.

The Q-flex LNG carrier was built in 2008 by the South Korean shipbuilder Samsung Heavy Industries.
