Chiyoda to study Qatar’s LNG expansion plan
2017/05/31
The study is expected to be completed before the end of this year, which will allow QP to kick off the FEED work early next year, if it concludes that this option will achieve the optimum value for the State of Qatar.
Chiyoda announced that it has signed an agreement with Qatar Petroleum for conducting a detailed study to identify the modifications that are required for debottlenecking the capacity of Qatar’s LNG trains in Ras Laffan “in order to process additional quantities of gas that will be produced from the planned new North Field gas project.”
The study is expected to be completed before the end of this year, which will allow QP to kick off the FEED work early next year, if it concludes that this option will achieve the optimum value for the State of Qatar, Chiyoda said in its statement.
"This agreement provides Qatar Petroleum with the option of increasing its LNG production with minimum investment, by leveraging the existing massive, world-class infrastructure and valuable synergies available in Ras Laffan Industrial City," Saad S. Al-Kaabi QP CEO said, adding that “Qatar Petroleum is determined to continue its lead position in the gas industry with its expansion plans, both inside and outside the State of Qatar."
Last month, Qatar Petroleum announced its intention to develop a new gas project in the southern sector of the North Field with a capacity of about 2 BCF/D for export.
