Emerson’s Expertise and Technology Helps Qatargas Save Energy and Reduce Greenhouse Gases
World’s largest gas recovery project now at full capacity
Emerson Process Management, a global business of Emerson (NYSE:EMR), has
provided automation and engineering services for a Qatargas project that
will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 1.6 million tonnes 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 600,000
tonnes 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 liquefied
natural gas (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.
Emerson won this multi-million dollar contract based on its leadership
in oil and gas automation technologies, services, and expertise. Emerson
specialists managed key elements of the project including automation
engineering, configuration, startup, training, commissioning support and
“Without Emerson’s highly skilled team, completing the project would
have been vastly harder,” said Michael Koo, Qatargas’ Project Manager.
Emerson’s automation solution for the project included the DeltaV™
distributed control system to control and monitor operations, as well as
the company’s Fisher® control valves and Rosemount®
“The Emerson team welcomed this opportunity to help Qatargas execute the
project safely, reliably and efficiently,” said Alvinne Rex Abaricia,
Emerson’s senior program manager for Qatargas. “We were able to apply
flexible approaches to increase efficiency, such as testing hardware and
software in parallel, and brought in dozens of experts from our own
organization as well as other suppliers to manage interfaces between
existing and new systems.”
The $1 billion JBOG project is a landmark for the State of Qatar,
demonstrating its commitment to balance industrial expansion with care
for the environment.
