The South Hook LNG Terminal, a part of the Qatargas 2 integrated Value Chain, is one of the largest Liquefied Natural Gas re-gasification terminals in Europe.
The Terminal provides the UK with a significant proportion of its natural gas requirements.
A state of the art fleet of double-hulled ships brings the LNG from Qatar's immense gas field, to the safe, deep anchorage provided in Milford Haven.
The South Hook LNG re-gasification Terminal is where the LNG is converted from a liquid back to a gas and is then delivered to the UK's homes and businesses via the national grid.
LNG imports greatly increase the UK's security and diversity of gas supply while helping to ensure that natural gas remains a competitive source of energy.
The South Hook LNG Terminal, as a part of the Qatargas 2 integrated Value Chain, plays a major role in the strengthening of the strategic partnership between the State of Qatar and the UK.
It is ground breaking in terms of its size and strategic importance and is the first Qatari involvement in a foreign downstream terminal. It is a major component of Qatar's LNG supply portfolio and in realising their ambition to be the world's leading LNG supplier.
The South Hook LNG Terminal is a major contributor to the UK's energy policy needs and enables the UK to have a western entry point into the national grid system. The South Hook LNG Terminal transforms the energy economy of Wales and has a huge positive impact in local employment and prospects, where throughout its life in excess of £1 billion will be injected into the local economy.
For the way forward, as the cleanest of the fossil fuels, Liquefied Natural Gas continues to provide a bright future.
