Welsh LNG plant exhibits 500 MW CHP plan

A plan to develop a 500 MW combined heat and power (CHP) within the South Hook liquefied natural gas (LNG) terminal in south Wales is being exhibited to local residents this week.

A second round of presentations by the CHP project team will include details on how the cogeneration plan has incorporated input from the public into its site selection and choice of standby cooling system.

The on-site gas-fired plant would cut the terminal's reliance on gas and electricity from the gird. Heat from the facility would help convert LNG back into a gaseous state, raising the project's overall efficiency to 90%. Excess electricity would feed the grid.

Qatar Petroleum International Ltd., ExxonMobil Power Ltd. (NYSE:XOM) and Total Gas and Power Business Services S.A.S (NYSE:TOT) are proposing the project, which is due to fire up in mid-2016 and begin full operation the following year.

The South Hook LNG Terminal near Milford Haven was fully commissioned in 2010 and is one of Europe's largest LNG receiving terminals, with a capacity of meeting up to 20% of the UK’s gas demand.
