Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
The port was designed as an export facility for Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), condensate and sulphur derived from the processing of gas landed from the North Field Gas Reservoir situated 67 km NNE of the Port. Ras Laffan is planned to expand rapidly over the next few years and have identified the need for new multi-user liquid product berths from whichGas-to-Liquids (GTL) products can be exported from amongst many products.
The berths are designed to enable simultaneous berthing, mooring and loading of two vessels from 20,000 to 300,000 DWT. The berths have a common approach jetty with approach road and have pipe racks on either side leading from the Lee Breakwater to the loading platform area. The loading platform will accommodate eleven loading arms for each berth.
The berths are constructed using mass concrete blocks and similar to the existing 2A and 2B Liquid Product Berths. They consist of breasting and mooring dolphins, quick release hooks, catwalks for access to the mooring dolphins, navigation lights, fenders, fire fighting facilities, ship-to-shore gangway and lighting among other topside facilities.The buildings consist of a common control building, an electrical sub-station and firewater pump house as well as pipe racks and other piping structures.
