One of the ma­jor en­vi­ron­ment projects in the world, Qatar has launched the Jetty Boil-off Gas (J-BoG) re­cov­ery project un­der the pa­tron­age of the Prime Min­is­ter and Min­is­ter of In­te­rior HE Sheikh Ab­dul­lah bin Nasser bin Khal­ifa Al Thani.

Lo­cated on the Ras Laf­fan Industrial city, the $1 bil­lion (QR3.64 bil­lion) project will re­cover and col­lect boiled-off gas from LNG ships dur­ing load­ing, which will then be com­pressed at a cen­tral fa­cil­ity close to the load­ing point of LNG ei­ther to use as fuel for gen­er­at­ing elec­tric­ity or for con­ver­sion into LNG for ex­ports.

As much as 90% of gas flared can be saved by the project at the half a dozen LNG berths at the Ras Laf­fan port. This is equiv­a­lent to an­nual Green House Gas sav­ings of 1.6 mil­lion tonnes of CO2. The project will help re­cover 29 bil­lion stan­dard cu­bic feet of gas per year which is enough gas to pro­duce 750 MW of power to light up 300,000 homes.
