SAFETY AT QATARGAS
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.
