DOHA, Qatar-- Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil have started Train 7 of the Ras Laffan 3 LNG project at Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar. The gas is supplied from offshore facilities on the giant North field.
Train 7 is the fourth 7.8 million tons/yr LNG plant brought online by the two companies in the past 12 months. It matches the capacity of Ras Laffan 3 Train 6, one of the world’s largest LNG production facilities, which was inaugurated in October 2009, and also supplied from the North field.
Ras Laffan 3 is part of a comprehensive program that includes investments by affiliates of Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil in 12 new, higher-capacity LNG carrier vessels, and the Golden Pass LNG re-gasification terminal, under construction near Sabine Pass, Texas, a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum (70 %), ExxonMobil (17.6 %), and ConocoPhillips (12.4 %).
