Qatargas has passed a major milestone towards completing a new berth for liquefied natural gas (LNG) tankers at Ras Laffan Port, with the safe installation of 68 metres-tall flare tower.

The new terminal, LNG Berth 6, will be capable of loading Qatargas’s latest Q-max tankers, each of which is 345 metres long. The flare is made up of three component sections assembled on location. The flare sits on a sub-structure 15 metres above sea level and the overall lifting weight of the operation was 80 tonnes.

Work on the new berth is being carried out by contractors, Fluor, MedGulf and Mammoet, under a Qatargas project management team. Mammoet used Crane model: CC-4800-1 with a lifting capacity of 800 tonnes as well as a 240 tonne Super lift. Overall boom length was set at 114 metres.

Qatargas Berth 6 Project Manager, Bertrand Boudier said: “This major lift puts us well on the way to completing Berth 6 safely and to meet the business needs. Everyone involved, whether from Qatargas or our contractors, has worked as one team, and can be proud of what we have achieved so far.”
