IRVING, Texas -- Qatar Petroleum and Exxon Mobil have started up Qatargas 2 Train 5.

The Qatargas 2 Train 4 began production in the second quarter. Each is designed with the capacity to produce 7.8 million tons per year, approximately 50% larger than any other global liquefaction facility currently operating outside of Qatar, according to the Qatargas 2 partners Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil.

Qatargas 2 links natural gas production, liquefaction, shipping, and regasification infrastructure into a single fully integrated LNG development and supply initiative. In addition to Trains 4 and 5, the Qatargas 2 joint venture encompasses a fleet of Q-Max and Q-Flex carriers and the newly commissioned South Hook Terminal in Milford Haven, Wales.
