Qatargas, the world’s largest LNG producer, said it has successfully started the Plateau Maintenance Project (PMP).
The objective of the project is to ensure the production capacity of Qatargas 1 is maintained at 10 mtpa of LNG for many years to come, Qatargas said in a statement.
The project involved drilling and recompleting offshore wells, adding new onshore facilities for sulfur handling and modifying existing LNG production trains 1, 2 and 3.
The onshore project had a major “brownfield” component, meaning virtually all of the work scope was conducted within existing operating facilities and equipment. the company added.
Qatargas 1 shareholders are Qatar Petroleum, ExxonMobil, Total, Mitsui and Marubeni.
