RWE delivers its first LNG cargo to Great Britain
On Tuesday (November 5) RWE delivered the first Liquified Natural Gas cargo (LNG) to Great Britain. Around 150,000 m3 of LNG will be regasified through a Milford Haven LNG Terminal, located close to RWE’s 2,000 megawatt Pembroke B gas-fired CCGT Power Station (Combined Cycle Gas Power Plant).
The cargo has been sourced from the portfolio of RWE Supply & Trading, the subsidiary of RWE which is responsible for gas and LNG trading. The cargo was loaded from Sabine Pass Liquefaction Terminal in the Gulf of Mexico, USA and transported by RWE Supply & Trading 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 m3 of natural gas. One LNG cargo can therefore meet almost half of Pembroke’s monthly gas consumption.
As one of the largest operators of gas-fired power generation in Great Britain, RWE’s demand is equivalent to around 7% of the British annual gas demand, the company said.
