Gas projects in Qatar

Gas projects in Qatar

Context and challenges

Qatar is the world’s leading natural gas producer alongside Australia and Russia. Now, the country is aiming to further establish itself as the number one producer of natural gas. To achieve this, the Arab state plans to up its production — already up to a whopping 77 million total tonnes per annum (TPA) — by 64% in 2027. In line with this national plan, our client and one of the world’s largest Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) companies, will be expanding its operations with investments of 50 billion dollars.
MPH has been working with this client for more than 15 years and during this time, our specialised knowledge in gas has been especially beneficial. For instance, MPH assisted the client on their Ras Laffan site in Qatar, deploying qualified engineering and construction professionals. Most recently, MPH and its client collaborated on the Barzan pipeline project, an offshore pipeline requiring several supervisors and construction specialists.
For their next venture, the client will be constructing 6 mega trains, each transporting 7.8 million tonnes of LNG per year. Once again, MPH’s assistance has been requested for this large-scale project — one of the most expansive ones we have worked on.
