Qatar takes FID on 33 MTPA LNG liquefaction project
February 8, 2021
Qatar has taken FID on the North Field East Project (NFE). The 33 MTPA project is expected to start production in Q4 2025 and will raise Qatar’s LNG production to approximately 110 MTPA. The project will be composed of 4 mega LNG trains of 8 MTPA each, at an estimated cost of 28.75 billion dollars. It will also include associated facilities for gas treatment, natural gas liquids recovery, helium extraction and refining within Ras Laffan Industrial City, and will integrate a CCS system within the wider CCS scheme in Ras Laffan. The second phase of the project, North Field South Project (NFS), which involves the construction of two additional mega LNG trains – of 8 MTPA each – and associated offshore and onshore facilities, is planned to further increase Qatar’s LNG production capacity to around 126 MTPA in 2027.
