Rasgas reveals all LNG trains back running

15 July 2010

Qatari LNG producer Rasgas has said that all liquefied natural gas production units are back online after an extensive maintenance programme, Reuters has reported. The trains will take time to ramp up to full production after the outage, which could delay increased supply by a few weeks. Rasgas' newest train 7, which came back online after a supply outage in May, is not expected to run at full capacity until September, according to analysts. Qatar is set to increase its gas production capacity to 77 million tonnes per year by the beginning of next year, with the addition of the 7.8-mtpa Qatargas trains 6 and 7.
