RasGas Company Limited’s (RasGas) Subsurface and Technology Group recently celebrated 20 million man-hours without a lost time incident (LTI). The safety milestone was achieved over a period of nearly seven years and is a testament to the Company’s on-going commitment to safety across all business activities. At peak activity, over 1,400 personnel were involved in operating and supporting as many as nine drilling rigs and 21 supply vessels.
RasGas Company Limited (RasGas) is a Qatari joint stock company established in 2001 by Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil RasGas Inc. RasGas acts as the operating company for and on behalf of the owners of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) projects RL, RL (II) and RL3 (Project Owners). With operations facilities based in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar, RasGas’ principal activities are to extract, process, liquefy, store and export LNG and its derivatives from Qatar’s North Field. RasGas, on behalf of the Project Owners, exports to countries across Asia, Europe and the Americas with a total LNG production capacity of approximately 37 million tonnes per annum.
For pipeline sales gas to the domestic market, RasGas also operates the Al Khaleej Gas Projects, AKG-1 and AKG-2 supplying approximately 2.0 billion standard cubic feet (Bscf) per day.
