Qatargas achieves historic milestone - all four of its mega liquefaction Trains are now at 100% production capacity. This means that as the world’s largest Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) producer, Qatargas is currently running at its full production capacity of 42 million tonnes per annum (MTA) from a total of its seven trains.
Commenting on this accomplishment, Khalid Bin Khalifa Al Thani, Chief Executive Officer of Qatargas, said:
“I’m proud of this landmark achievement for Qatargas. With this, Qatargas is now fully contributing its significant share to the State of Qatar’s vision of producing 77 MTA. This accomplishment is also supporting the vision of His Highness the Emir, Sheikh Hamad Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, that Qatar’s energy resources would fuel the country’s long-term development. We are thankful to His Excellency Dr. Mohammed Saleh Al Sada, Minister of Energy & Industry and Chairman of Board of Directors of Qatargas for his guidance and leadership in this regard and this would not have been possible without the contribution and support of all people of Qatargas. On behalf of Qatargas management, I thank them all and encourage them to keep up this excellence performance in future as well.”
“For Qatargas, this underscores the fact that we are now officially the largest LNG producer in the world. This is coupled with the responsibility of operating all our projects safely, reliably and environmentally responsibly, continuing to satisfy our customers in all four corners of the globe.” He further explained: “This is a new era for Qatargas as we now become a fully operational company and all the expansion projects have now been handed over to the Qatargas Operating Company from the project teams.”
For Qatargas it has taken only five years to fulfil the vision to complete all the major expansion projects Qatargas 2, Qatargas 3, Qatargas 4 and the Laffan Refinery – a truly unrivalled feat.
