The United Kingdom has booked an additional couple of cargoes for delivery this week following three cargoes booked for delivery earlier. 

First of the two cargoes is being transported onboard the 216,000-cbm LNG tanker Al Hamla from Qatar’s Ras Laffan LNG complex.

The second cargo is heading for the Dragon LNG terminal from the Norwegian Hammerfest liquefied natural gas facility. The cargo is being transported onboard the 147,980-cbm Arctic Princess LNG carrier.

Both cargoes are scheduled for delivery Friday, February 15, shipping data from the Milford Haven Port Authority shows.

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

The Dragon LNG terminal at Waterston, Milford Haven in Pembrokeshire, is owned by Shell (50 percent) and Petronas (50 percent).

The facility has a maximum gas send out rate to the NTS of 7.6 billion cubic meters of gas per annum. The terminal can supply up to 10 percent of the UK’s energy needs.
