Energy company RWE has delivered its first liquified natural gas cargo (LNG) to Great Britain’s Milford Haven LNG terminal.
RWE said on Monday that around 150,000 cbm of LNG was regasified on Tuesday through a Milford Haven LNG terminal, located close to RWE’s 2,000 MW Pembroke B combined cycle gas power plant power station.
The cargo has been sourced from the portfolio of RWE Supply & Trading, an RWE unit which is responsible for gas and LNG trading.
The gas was loaded from the Sabine Pass liquefaction terminal in the Gulf of Mexico and transported to Great Britain on the GasLog Savannah LNG carrier.
Once regasified, the LNG will meet a significant proportion of any gas consumption needs of Pembroke power station. On a typical day, Pembroke burns 8,000,000 cbm of natural gas. One LNG cargo can therefore meet almost half of its monthly gas consumption.
As one of the largest operators of gas-fired power generation in Great Britain, RWE’s demand is equivalent to around seven percent of the British annual gas demand.
