Qatargas Operating Company, Ltd. is an agent for seven Qatar Liquefied Gas companies and Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas companies.
Recovery systems eliminate pollution and supply fuel gas to LNG companies at the Qatargas terminal. Natural gas is cooled to approximately -250 degrees Fahrenheit for shipping, which also condenses it. Jetty boil-off gas is generated through vapor displacement from ship loading and vaporization; it had been flared at LNG loading berths.
Approximately 168 tons per hour of boil-off gas – the volume produced from three berths loading simultaneously – was recovered at one of the first systems. Roughly 78.3 million metric tonnes per annum of Qatar LNG will be exported from the Ras Laffan port when all the Qatargas and RasGas expansion projects are completed.
