Qatar’s first condensate refinery comes onstream: production commences at Laffan Refinery

29-Sep-09
Qatar has started production at the country’s first condensate refinery as Qatargas production reached commercial quantities and specifications at the Laffan Refinery. The new refinery has a total processing capacity of 146,000 barrels per stream day (BPSD). It consists of process units including utility systems, distillation units, naphtha and kerosene hydrotreaters, a hydrogen unit and a saturated gas plant producing naphtha, kerojet, gasoil and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).The Laffan Refinery is a key part of the strategic vision for Qatar as it will process and add value to the field condensate produced from the QatargasQatargas and RasGasRasGas facilities. The condensate will be refined and turned into products such as naphtha, kerojet (otherwise known as jet fuel) and gasoil. The refinery's production capacity will be 61,000 bpsd of naphtha, 52,000 bpsd of kerojet, 24,000 bpsd of gasoil, and 9,000 bpsd of LPG. The Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contractor for this project was a consortium of GS Engineering & Construction Corporation and Daewoo Engineering & Construction Company. QatargasQatargas operates the refinery on behalf of the shareholders: Qatar Petroleum (51%), Total (10%), ExxonMobil (10%), Cosmo (10%), Idemitsu (10%), Mitsui (4.5%) and Marubeni (4.5%).
