Qatargas has announced that it has now completed 13 years of operations on its offshore facilities without a Lost Time Incident (LTI).
Comprising nine offshore platforms, the company’s offshore facilities supply gas and condensate to the onshore liquefaction plant at Ras Laffan. The LNG plant has a production capacity of 42 million tpy of LNG.
The offshore facilities are located approximately 80 km northeast of Qatar’s mainland. A total of 85 wells together supply approximately 7.5 billion ft3 of gas to the seven LNG production trains onshore.
A statement on Qatargas’ website read: “This achievement was made possible as a result of the hard work and dedication by everyone working on North Field Bravo along with the continuous support from different departments across the company”.
Qatargas has several programmes in place that support its goal of maintaining ‘incident and injury free’ operations, including risk assessments, permit to work system, job safety analysis, etc. In 2013, Qatargas launched the ‘10 Life Saving Rules’ programme, which set out clear and simple rules covering activities with the highest potential safety risk.
