Qatar­gas Jetty Boil-Off Gas Re­cov­ery fa­cil­ity wins ‘Sus­tain­abil­ity Award’

Gulf Times Business - - FRONT PAGE -

Qatar­gas’ Jetty Boil-Off Gas (JBOG) Re­cov­ery Fa­cil­ity has been hon­oured with a Qatar Sus­tain­abil­ity award dur­ing the Qatar Sus­tain­abil­ity Week 2018. The pres­ti­gious ac­co­lade was awarded to Qatar­gas by the Qatar Green Build­ing Coun­cil, a mem­ber of Qatar Foun­da­tion at a gala din­ner held in hon­our of in­di­vid­u­als, in­sti­tu­tions and or­gan­i­sa­tions who have pos­i­tively im­pacted so­ci­ety with world-class sus­tain­able ini­tia­tives.

The Qatar Sus­tain­abil­ity Awards recog­nise the ef­forts, com­mit­ment and con­tri­bu­tions of in­di­vid­u­als, in­sti­tu­tions and or­gan­i­sa­tions in fur­ther­ing sus­tain­able de­vel­op­ment and en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion in Qatar and be­yond.

The awards are sup­ported by the Ab­dul­lah bin Hamad AlAt­tiyah In­ter­na­tional Foun­da­tion for En­ergy and Sus­tain­able De­vel­op­ment.

Built and op­er­ated by Qatar­gas, the JBOG Re­cov­ery facil- ity min­imises flar­ing at the Liq­ue­fied Nat­u­ral Gas (LNG) load­ing berths in Ras Laf­fan City.

This fa­cil­ity com­menced op­er­a­tions in Oc­to­ber 2014 and re­cov­ers more than 90% of the boil-off gas that was pre­vi­ously flared near the jet­ties. The JBOG col­lects the boil-off gas and trans­ports it to a cen­tral com­pres­sor prior to re­turn­ing it to the LNG plants where it is used as fuel gas, or con­verted back into LNG.

The fa­cil­ity re­duces jetty flar­ing by ap­prox­i­mately 90% and CO2 emis­sions by ap­prox­i­mately 1.6mn tonnes per an­num. The re­duc­tion in CO2 emis­sions is equiv­a­lent to the emis­sions of 175,000 cars.

As a re­sult, the JBOG fa­cil­ity sup­ports the en­vi­ron­men­tal pro­tec­tion and sus­tain­abil­ity tar­gets of the Qatar Na­tional Vi­sion (QNV) 2030, and sup­ports Qatar’s com­mit­ment to re­duce cli­mate chang­ing car­bon emis­sions.
