Qatar Kentz bags Ras Laffan EPC contract
Ras Laffan EPC contract will enable domestic distribution of diesel
Qatar Kentz has won an engineering, procurement and construction contract from Laffan Refinery Company for a receiving and loading facility to be built in Ras Laffan Industrial City.
The facility, known as the Gantry project, will allow distribution of diesel products to the northern geographical vicinity of Qatar.
"This project is of strategic importance to the State of Qatar as it creates vital new infrastructure for the distribution of diesel to the domestic market and builds upon the strategic vision started by the realisation of the Laffan Refinery which became operational earlier in the summer," Salman Ashkanani, Laffan Refinery venture manager, said.
The project scope includes developing a new automated gantry facility, designed for the loading of diesel product into road tankers and transfer by pipeline to the Ras Laffan Port area.
The diesel will be produced by the first condensate refinery in Qatar, Laffan Refinery, which has a processing capacity of 146,000 barrels per stream day.
