Qatargas offshore operations reach safety milestone
Qatargas said it has reached another safety milestone by completing thirteen years of operations on its offshore facilities without a Lost Time Incident.
Comprising nine offshore platforms, the Qatargas Offshore facilities supply gas and condensate to the onshore liquefaction plant at Ras Laffan, with a production capacity of 42 million tonnes per annum of LNG. The Qatargas offshore facilities ensure sustained production of LNG from Qatargas’ onshore plant, the company said in a statement.
The Qatargas offshore facilities are located approximately 80 kilometers northeast of Qatar’s mainland. A total of 85 wells together supply approximately 7.5 billion standard cubic feet of gas to the seven LNG production trains onshore. The gas, along with the associated condensate is transferred to shore via subsea pipelines. The North Field Bravo offshore complex, which was commissioned in 1996, is the heart of Qatargas’ offshore operations.
