What We Do

South Hook Gas owns and manages 100% of the regasification capacity of the South Hook LNG Terminal (SHLNG). Our core business is to import LNG from QatarEnergy LNG 2 and sell it to ExxonMobil Gas Marketing Europe. The company has a 25-year LNG supply agreement with QatarEnergy LNG 2, a 25-year sales agreement with ExxonMobil Gas Marketing Europe and a 25-year service agreement with SHLNG to provide regasification services on our behalf.


When there is spare capacity at the Terminal, this is marketed by South Hook Gas so that other companies can potentially bring in additional LNG cargoes to the UK.
