Queen Elizabeth attended the opening of Europe’s largest tanker terminal for liquefied natural gas on Tuesday, May 12, 2009. The Emir of Qatar, Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al-Thani, performed the official inauguration.
The South Hook Terminal, located in Milford Haven in Wales, is a joint project of three gas companies based in three countries: Exxon Mobil (U.S.), Qatar Petroleum (Qatar) and Total (France).
The emir’s wife Sheikha Mozah bint Nasser Al-Missned was also present, as was Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh, who accompanied Queen Elizabeth.
