Qatar’s LNG output target a step closer

Qatargas has achieved a milestone by producing “first drops of liquefied natural gas” at its Train 6, the world’s largest LNG facility at Ras Laffan.

The 7.8mn tonnes per year (tpy) capacity super train has been set up under Qatargas 3 project (QG 3), which is a joint venture among Qatar Petroleum, ConocoPhillips and Mitsui & Company.

Qatargas said the production of first LNG at Train 6 was taking Qatar one more step closer to realising HH the Emir’s vision of achieving 77mn tpy of LNG production capacity by 2010-end.
