Isle of Grain

The Isle of Grain, in the north of Kent, is the easternmost point of the Hoo Peninsula. No longer an island, the Isle is almost all marshland and the Grain Marshes are an important habitat for bird-life. The south of the island is an important industrial area, with Thamesport (The UK's third largest container port), The Isle of Grain Power Station and a Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) importing facility all located here.

Grain LNG

Grain LNG was originally built in the late 1970ís to liquefy Natural Gas from the North Sea it was converted
and commissioned in 2005 as an LNG importation facility. The
terminal had the capacity to receive and process up to 3.3 million tonnes of LNG per annum, equivalent to 13 million cubic metres of gas per day. The large storage tanks were built in 2010. The facility is run by National Grid.
