Emerson Process Management has provided automation and engineering services for a Qatargas project that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1.6 MT annually.
Now fully operational, the Jetty Boil-Off Gas (JBOG) Recovery facility is the biggest of its kind and one of the largest environmental investments in the world. It is expected to recover more than 600,000t of liquefied natural gas per year – equivalent to the energy supply for more than 300,000 homes.
The facility is designed to recover the gas flared during LNG loading at the six LNG berths in Ras Laffan Port. The gas is compressed and sent to the Qatargas and RasGas LNG production facilities for use as fuel or as LNG.
