DOHA, March 16, 2022 – QatarEnergy has inaugurated its Barzan gas facility in the Ras Laffan Industrial City north of Doha, the Qatari NOC announced on social media on Tuesday.
The Barzan gas plant has the capacity to produce almost 39.7 bcm (1.4 bcf) of gas per day destined for local power generation and water desalination. It can also produce 2,000 tonnes of ethane and 1,500 tonnes of LPG per day.
