Qatar prepping LNG trains for North Field gas

Qatar Petroleum (QP) has hired Chiyoda Corporation to carry out a detailed study to identify the modifications needed for debottlenecking the capacity of Qatar’s LNG trains, in order to process additional quantities of gas that will be produced from the planned new North Field offshore gas project.

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, Qatar Petroleum’s President and CEO, said: “As part of its efforts to reinforce Qatar’s leading position in the global gas industry, this agreement provides Qatar Petroleum with the option of increasing its LNG production with minimum investment, by leveraging the existing massive, world-class infrastructure and valuable synergies available in Ras Laffan Industrial City.”

Al-Kaabi, added: “Qatar ranks first in the world in the production and export of liquefied natural gas (LNG), the first in the production and export of gas to liquid products (GTL) and the first in the production and export of Helium. Qatar Petroleum is determined to continue its lead position in the gas industry with its expansion plans, both inside and outside the State of Qatar.”

The agreement was signed at QP headquarters in Doha. Qatar Petroleum had announced on April 3, 2017, its intention to develop a new gas project in the southern sector of the North Field with a capacity of about 2 billion cubic feet per day for export.

The study is expected to be completed before the end of this year, which will allow QP to kick off the FEED work early next year, if it concludes that this option will achieve the optimum value for the State of Qatar.​
