RasGas WHP5 Begins Production

Source: The Peninsula 8/9/2005, Location: Middle East

RasGas recently announced the commencement of gas production from its offshore Wellhead Platform 5 (WHP5) located at Ras Laffan's 'B' block, according to a press statement issued by the company. WHP5 represents another major addition of 4.7 metric tonnes per annum (MTA) to the existing 11.55MTA production resource base of RasGas. WHP 5 is the culmination of years of relentless effort and diligence that has made Train 4 Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) a reality.

As gas starts to flow from WHP5, RasGas offshore output becomes available for commissioning work at onshore LNG Train 4. In the meantime, WHP7 and 5 will jointly continue feeding LNG Train 3 while completion of train 4 draws near. Commenting on the launch of production at WHP5, Operations Manager Hamad Al Muhannadi, said, "WHP5 adds strategic value to our production base at RasGas. It is the fruit of the dedication shown all along by our teams at the operations expansion and project departments who have managed to achieve this success with no recordable incidents or accidents."
