Qatar plans CHP plant in Wales

Qatar Petroleum is planning a 500 MW combined heat and power (CHP) plant at its South Hook liquefied natural gas import terminal in Wales, UK.

"The proposed CHP plant will have an installed capacity of up to 500 MW and produce sufficient electricity to both meet the existing LNG terminal's power needs and to export surplus electricity," Qatar Petroleum and project partners ExxonMobil and Total said in an environmental impact assessment report to the planning authority.

It expects to submit a formal application in first-quarter 2013, the authority said.

The plan includes the option to eventually export surplus power into the National Grid transmission system via a plug-in point at Pembroke Power Station.

Britain depends on Qatar for nearly all of the UK's LNG supplies via the South Hook terminal.
