LNG Importation Terminal, Pembrokeshire

ExxonMobil and Qatar Gas

The South Hook LNG Terminal has been constructed on the site of the former Esso Oil Refinery within the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park and adjacent to the Milford Haven waterway (an SSSI, Candidate SAC).

RPS advised on the planning and licensing requirements of the project including Hazardous Substances Consents and the need for a Marine Licence from the then MCEU. RPS conducted all the necessary Environmental Impact Assessments (both terrestrial and marine) and worked with the client in the public consultation stages of the project.

RPS secured two separate planning permissions and Hazardous Substances Consents from the Pembrokeshire Coast NPA and Pembrokeshire County Council. We also secured the necessary permit for the Jetty Refurbishment from the MCEU and the Environmental Permit from the Environment Agency. It then secured revised permissions for the project.

RPS continues to advise the South Hook Terminal Company on planning and environmental matters and has secured a number of planning permissions for the Company in recent years which include a Jetty Gatehouse, Contractors Village and the installation of new Liquid Nitrogen Storage Vessels.
