Train 6, which is part of the Qatargas 3 project, is a joint venture between Qatar Petroleum, US-based ConocoPhillips and Japan’s Mitsui, with capacity to chill enough natural gas to produce 7.8 million tonnes of LNG per year for export.
Future liquefied natural gas output from Qatargas’ trains 6 and 7 has already been sold, mainly to Europe, Asia and North America, Qatar’s Energy Minister Abdullah Attiyah said in September.
Qatar is the world’s biggest exporter of LNG, reported Reuters.
