QatarEnergy LNG has delivered the 1,000th LNG shipment to the South Hook LNG Terminal at Milford Haven in the United Kingdom.
The landmark delivery was made by the Q-Max LNG carrier Mozah, which already has another landmark achievement to its name: the 10,000th LNG cargo from Ras Laffan Port in 2006.
Commenting on this occasion, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the minister of state for energy affairs, the president and CEO of QatarEnergy, says: ‘The 1,000th LNG delivery is another strong affirmation of our commitment to ensuring a reliable supply of cleaner energy to our customers around the world, which is vital for a sustainable energy transition.’
With the arrival of the 1,000th vessel, South Hook Terminal has received and processed almost 100 million tonnes of LNG, which is the equivalent of supplying natural gas to every household in the UK for almost 5 years.
The terminal has the capacity to process up to 20% of the United Kingdom’s needs of natural gas.
