1,000th LNG ship loading milestone for Qatargas
Qatargas’ Jetty Boil-Off Gas (JBOG) recovery facility has achieved a major milestone loading its 1,000th LNG Ship, Rasheeda
Qatargas’ Jetty Boil-Off Gas (JBOG) recovery facility has achieved a major milestone marking its 1,000th loading with the LNG Ship, Rasheeda.
The JBOG facility started operations in October 2014, and since then has safely recovered approximately 535,000 metric tonnes of Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), enough to power 300,000 homes.
Qatargas headquarters in Ras Laffan Industrial City witnessed a ceremony to celebrate this achievement, which was attended by dignitaries and staff.
JBOG plant uses one of the largest boil-off compressors ever built, which operates in a wide range of conditions and is a technical first for the manufactures.
During one year of operation, the JBOG facility has returned over five hundred thousand metric tonnes of gas to the ventures and reduced flaring by around 90%, a significant contribution from Qatargas to realising some of the major environmental objectives of the Qatar National Vision 2030 around reducing carbon emissions.
As part of the Common Facilities Projects at Ras Laffan Industrial City (RLIC),the JBOG Project is led and operated by Qatargas on behalf of Qatar Petroleum and the LNG producers in Qatar.
It is the biggest project of its kind and one of the largest environmental investments in the world, designed to recover the gas flared during loading at the six LNG berths in Ras Laffan Port.
