Massive North field to boost Qatar’s LNG output by 64 %

Massive North field to boost Qatar’s LNG output by 64 %

Doha, November 27 - Neftegaz.RU. The contribution from Qatar’s giant North Field in the Persian Gulf is expected to boost Qatar’s LNG production to 126 million tons per annum by 2027. This is a 64% increase from the current 77 mtpa.

Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, CEO of Qatar Petroleum, said that new studies revealed that the North Field’s productive layers extend well into Qatari land in Ras Laffan, paving the for a new LNG production project in the north of Qatar.

Al-Kaabi said: “During the past 2 years, Qatar Petroleum worked diligently to determine the degree to which the North Field extends towards the southwest, as well as the possibility of production from Qatar’s northern coastal onshore areas.”

Al-Kaabi also said that the confirmed gas reserves of the North Field exceed 1760 trillion cubic feet, in addition to more than 70 billion barrels of condensate, and “massive quantities of LPG, ethane, and helium.”

He said: “These are very important findings, which will have a great positive impact on Qatar’s gas industry, and which will move it forward into bigger and wider horizons. These results will also enable us to immediately commence the necessary engineering work for 2 additional LNG mega trains with a combined annual capacity of 16 million tons per annum.

“This will raise Qatar’s LNG production from currently 77 million tons to 126 million tons per annum by 2027, representing an increase of about 64%. It will also raise Qatar’s overall hydrocarbon production to about 6.7 million barrels oil equivalent per day.”
