First LNG cargo arrives at South Hook terminal

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Mar. 23 -- ExxonMobil Corp. reported that the first LNG cargo has arrived at the South Hook LNG receiving terminal in Milford Haven, Wales.

The terminal will have the capability to deliver as much as 2 bcfd of gas into the gas grid when it reaches full operational capacity later this year, ExxonMobil said.

South Hook LNG Terminal Co. Ltd. is owned by Qatar Petroleum 67.5%, ExxonMobil 24.15%, and Total SA 8.35%. The terminal forms part of the wider Qatargas II joint venture, which will supply gas to the UK from Qatar's North field.

The terminal, which is being completed in two phases, includes five LNG storage tanks, a regasification plant, ship unloading systems, and a jetty to allow berthing of the world's largest LNG vessels.

"The arrival of the commissioning cargo into South Hook is a significant milestone in the development of the Qatargas II project, the world's first full LNG value chain investment," said Faisal Al Suwaidi, chairman and chief executive officer of Qatargas Operating Co.
