Current production stands at 10.7 million tonnes

Qatar’s production capacity of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) will reach 11 million tonnes a year (t/y) by 2012, according to the head the company responsible for marketing the product abroad has said.

Current LPG production stands at about 10.7 million t/y.

“The more we produce liquefied natural gas (LNG), the more LPG we get,” Saad al-Kuwari, chief executive officer of Tasweeq, told the Gulf Times.

Tasweeq markets by-products of Qatar’s gas processing operations, including LPG, condensates, refined products and sulphur.

The company is expected to export all of its LPG in 2012, alongside 190 million barrels of condensate, 7.5 million tonnes of naphtha and 3 million tonnes of refined products.
