Qatargas has announced that its Jetty Boil-Off Gas (JBOG) recovery facility has reached its 1000th loading with the Rasheeda LNG carrier.
Since operations started in October 2014, the JBOG facility has safely recovered approximately 535 000 t of LNG.
A ceremony was recently organised at Qatargas’ Headquarters in Ras Laffan Industrial City to celebrate the milestone.
The JBOG Project is led and operated by Qatargas on behalf of Qatar Petroleum and the LNG producers in Qatar. It is the biggest project of its kind and one of the largest environmental investments in the world, designed to recover the gas flared during LNG loading at the six LNG berths in Ras Laffan Port. During one year of operation, the JBOG facility reduced flaring by approximately 90%.
