HOUSTON, Apr. 6
-- The 146,000-b/d condensate refinery at Ras Laffan, Qatar, is operating at full capacity, officials of Qatargas, the operator, said at an inauguration ceremony.

The facility, first of its kind in Qatar and one of the world’s largest, started up last September after a series of delays (OGJ, Apr. 20, 2009, Newsletter).

It has distillation units, naphtha and kerosine hydrotreaters, a hydrogen unit, and a saturated gas plant.

Production capacities are 63,000 b/sd of naphtha, 52,000 b/sd of kerosine jet fuel, 24,000 b/sd of gas oil, and 8,000 b/sd of LPG.

The Laffan Refinery processes field condensate produced by Qatargas and RasGas.

Project interests are Qatar Petroleum 51%; ExxonMobil Corp., Total SA, Itemitsu, and Cosmo 10% each; and Mitsui and Marubeni 4.5% each.
