The first of the three cargoes is being transported onboard the 217,000 cbm LNG carrier Al Shamal from Qatar’s Ras Laffan complex. The vessel is scheduled to dock at South Hook’s jetty on Wednesday, November 6.

The second cargo is scheduled to arrive only a couple of days later on November 9. The cargo will arrive onboard the Seri Balqis 157,000 LNG carrier from the Corpus Christi LNG terminal in the United States.

The third and final is also arriving from the U.S. but from the Sabine Pass LNG terminal in Louisiana. It will arrive via the GasLog Skagen LNG carrier which has a capacity of 155,000 cbm.

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