Qatargas Launches USD 1 Billion Eco Project at Ras Laffan

Qatargas Launches USD 1 Billion Eco Project at Ras Laffan

The world’s largest LNG producer Qatargas has officially inaugurated the Jetty Boil-Off Gas Recovery (JBOG) Project to recover the gas flared during Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) loading at the six LNG berths in Ras Laffan Port.

The JBOG Project will result in a 90% reduction in flaring at the six LNG loading berths at Ras Laffan, equivalent to annual Green House Gas (GHG) savings of 1.6 million tonnes of CO2.

The project will help recover 29 billion standard cubic feet (bscf) of gas per year which is enough gas to produce 750 MW of power or to power 300,000 homes.

The JBOG Project is part of the Common Facilities Projects at RLIC and it is led and operated by Qatargas on behalf of Qatar Petroleum and RasGas Company Limited (RasGas).

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum and Chairman of Qatargas, said the JBOG Project is not only the biggest environmental project in the world, but also one of the largest investments of its kind, at nearly one billion dollars.

Ras Laffan is the world’s largest LNG export terminal and the only facility where multiple LNG ships can be loaded simultaneously. JBOG had to be designed to recover the boil off gas from multiple ships loading simultaneously.

Since the start of the first recovery of jetty boil-off gas in October 2014, jetty boil-off gas has been recovered from over 500 ships.
