Qatargas' Laf­fan Re­fin­ery (LR) has achieved two sig­nif­i­cant safety mile­stones by com­plet­ing two suc­ces­sive years of op­er­a­tions with­out any to­tal record­able in­jury (TRI) and more than six years of op­er­a­tions with­out any lost time in­ci­dent (LTI) since its start in Septem­ber 2009. The LR is op­er­ated by Qatargas on be­half of Qatar Pe­tro­leum, Cosmo, ExxonMo­bil, Idemitsu, To­tal, Marubeni and Mit­sui share­hold­ers. It is the largest con­den­sate re­fin­ery in the world with a ca­pac­ity of 160,600 bpd. This will scale up to 306,600 bpd with the LR2 ex­pan­sion project ex­pected to be com­pleted in the third quar­ter of this year. The high-value prod­ucts of the re­fin­ery in­clude naph­tha, kero­jet, ul­tra-low sul­phur diesel, propane and bu­tane.
