South Hook LNG cargo traffic picks up

Liquefied natural gas terminals on the United Kingdom’s Milford Haven waterway are set to receive a total of nine cargoes over the coming seven days. 

Shipping data from the Milford Haven Port Authority shows that the first cargo onboard the Nakilat-owned 216,312-cbm Q-Flex carrier Mesaimeer is scheduled to arrive at the Dragon LNG terminal on February 22. The cargo was loaded at the Qatari Ras Laffan LNG complex.

The Dragon LNG facility is scheduled to receive another cargo on the same day onboard Teekay’s 135,243-cbm LNG carrier Madrid Spirit. While MHPA’s data shows the source as Cartagena, Spain, AIS data provided by VesselsValue shows the vessel loading a cargo at Cheniere’s Sabine Pass facility earlier this month before making a stop at the SPEC LNG facility in Colombia. It is shown as sailing under ballast.

South Hook LNG facility is scheduled to receive a cargo also on Saturday, February 22, onboard the 177,000-cbm Shinshu Maru that loaded the cargo at the Freeport LNG facility in the United States.

The facility is set to receive another U.S.-souced cargo on Saturday when the 155,000-cbm Marvel Eagle delivers a Cameron LNG load.

The 174,000-cbm GasLog Greece that loaded a cargo at Trinidad and Tobago’s Point Fortin LNG facility is also scheduled to deliver a cargo to the Dragon LNG terminal on February 22.

The deliveries will ‘thin out’ after that as the next cargo will be delivered on February 25, when the 266,000-cbm Q-Max LNG carrier, Umm Slal docks at the South Hook facility with a Qatari cargo, followed by another Qatari load onboard the Q-Max Al Dafna on February 28.
