South Hook LNG terminal in the UK is scheduled to receive another cargo of Qatari liquefied natural gas at the end of the week. 

According to the port data, one of the world’s largest LNG carriers, the 266,000-cbm Aamira, is set to dock at South Hook LNG jetty on July 7.

Despite the diplomatic conflict between Qatar and several of its Middle East neighbours, the vessel transited the Suez Canal that still remains open for Qatari-flagged vessels, according to the marine data provider VesselsValue.

The Q-Max LNG carrier was built at Samsung Heavy Industries shipyard on Geoje Island, South Korea, and delivered in 2010 to its owner Nakilat.

Gas supply from the South Hook terminal was about 15.20 mcm/day on July 3, according to the latest National Grid data.

The South Hook terminal can process 15.6 million tons of LNG annually, which is close to 20 percent of the natural gas needs of the UK.

Qatar Petroleum owns 67.5 percent of South Hook LNG, ExxonMobil 24.15 percent and Total owns the rest.
