Gas expertise benefits Qatar's giant GTL plant

Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 3/8/2004, Location: Middle East

Qatar Petroleum and Qatar Shell GTL Ltd have signed an agreement for the development and construction of a 140,000-barrels-per-day gas-to-liquids (GTL) plant, the world's largest, in Ras Laffan, Qatar. The plant's development and construction will benefit from Shell Global Solutions' expertise in technology, operations and project management.

"This is a very significant milestone for us as it represents the start of a world-scale project for delivering long-term value to Qatar Shell GTL and Qatar Petroleum," says Sipke Mennes, project manager, Shell Global Solutions International BV. "The project is very important and provides an attractive means for Qatar to monetise its large gas reserves by making liquid hydrocarbon products out of gas."

The Shell Global Solutions project team is currently working on the basic design and will then move on to the front-end engineering and development phase, which will take around 14 months. The project team expects to reach the final investment decision in 2005. The Qatar project consists of two trains, with start-ups scheduled within 24 months of each other. The first train is expected to start up in early 2009.
