Abstract

RasGas Company Limited (RasGas), on behalf of Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil Barzan Limited, is in the execution phase of the Barzan Gas Project, constructing two of the largest natural gas processing trains in the world to provide the State of Qatar with natural gas and associated liquids to fuel its growing economy. At peak, more than 30,000 people from over 40 nations will work together to execute this project in a safe and environmentally responsible manner. Natural gas from Qatar’s North Field, the world’s largest non-associated gas field, will be produced at a rate of 1,900 million standard cubic feet per day (mmscfd) by Barzan Gas Project offshore facilities, comprising three unmanned wellhead platforms, two subsea pipelines, and two onshore gas processing trains, all of which will be operated by RasGas Company Limited on behalf of Barzan Gas Company Limited. In addition to producing natural gas, ethane and field condensate for the domestic market, Barzan Gas Company Limited will export liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), sulphur, and plant condensate to the international market. Against the background of Qatar’s unparalleled rapid rise to prominence on the world stage, broad development of its economy, industry, commercial and social systems, and the hosting of high–profile international events, including the 2022 World Cup, ambitious and impressive expansion programmes are being undertaken, including a new airport, new seaport, metro and rail networks, doubling the number of hotel rooms, new schools, universities, hospitals, sports stadiums, conference and exhibition centres. Natural gas supplied from the completed Barzan facilities, a landmark development, will play a key role in supporting Qatar’s growth with a clean and reliable source of energy from world class production facilities, and in doing so, support the four pillars of the Qatar National Vision 2030: human development, social development, economic development, and environmental development. The Barzan Gas Project takes its name from a fortified tower built in the early 20th century located north of Qatar’s capital city Doha.
