Qatar Petroleum delivers 500th LNG cargo to the UK
The delivery, on March 24th, was made on board the Q-Flex LNG vessel Al-Hamla
Qatar Petroleum (QP) last week announced the delivery of the 500th liquefied natural gas (LNG) cargo from QP affiliate Qatar Liquefied Gas Company to the South Hook LNG Terminal at Milford Haven in the United Kingdom.
The delivery, on March 24th, was made on board the Q-Flex LNG vessel Al-Hamla.
President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi described the delivery as ‘another significant achievement for Qatar’s LNG industry’.
While most of Qatari LNG destined to the United Kingdom is delivered to the South Hook LNG Terminal, QP’s affiliates Qatargas and RasGas also deliver LNG shipments to other terminals in the United Kingdom.
The arrival of this 500th shipment to South Hook raises the total number of Qatari LNG cargoes imported into the United Kingdom to more than 600.
South Hook LNG Terminal is a joint venture between affiliates of QP, ExxonMobil and Total.
It is part of the Qatargas 2 value chain, which is a fully integrated LNG shipping project from the Ras Laffan Industrial City in
the State of Qatar to international markets, including the United Kingdom, which is one of Europe’s largest LNG importers.
