Qatar LNG: Mega-trains and major ambitions

Qatargas hopes to become the world’s premier LNG producer by 2015, seeking innovation, operating excellence, corporate citizenship and environmental responsibility.

Blume, Adrienne, Hydrocarbon Processing Staff

Qatargas, the company behind what is presently the world’s largest liquefied natural gas (LNG) production facility, put down roots in 1984 and is headquartered in Doha, Qatar. It was the first company to start up LNG operations in Qatar, and it remains the largest. RasGas, the world’s second-biggest producer of LNG and the only other producer in Qatar, came on the scene in 2001 and now has seven trains to rival those of Qatargas. The two companies boast a combined production capacity of 77 MMtpy, with Qatargas accounting for 42 MMtpy of the total.
