Qatar Energy LNG Delivery of the 1,000th shipment of liquefied natural gas to… South Hook LNG terminal in Milford Haven, UK.

The historic delivery was made by LNG carrier Q-Max Mozah, which has already achieved another historic achievement to its name, the 10,000th shipment of LNG from the port of Ras Laffan in 2006.

His Excellency Engineer Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, Minister of State for Energy Affairs, President and CEO of Qatar Energy Company, “The 1,000th delivery of LNG is another strong confirmation of our commitment to ensuring a reliable supply of clean energy to our customers around the world, which is vital for the transition to sustainable energy,” he noted.

Minister Al Kaabi added that the South Hook LNG terminal symbolizes the importance of Qatar’s LNG to one of the most dynamic and vibrant economies in the world, as well as the long and historical relations between Qatar and the United Kingdom. We thank our partners ExxonMobil and TotalEnergies, as well as the Welsh authorities, for their continued support. “We also appreciate the efforts made by Qatar Energy LNG and Nakilat to provide safe and reliable LNG supplies and cargoes.”

With the arrival of the 1,000th vessel, the South Hook terminal received and processed nearly 100 million tons of LNG, the equivalent of supplying natural gas to every home in the UK for approximately five years.

Located on the Pembrokeshire coast near Milford Haven in Wales, the South Hook LNG terminal entered commercial operation in 2009 with the arrival of its operational cargo on board the Q-Flex class LNG carrier Tempec.
