Qatargas achieves new milestone with 10,000th ship loading at RLTO May 15, 2019 0 907 12345 Tribune news networkDohaQatargas’ Ras Laffan Terminal Operations (RLTO) has safely loaded the 10,000th cargo shipment of non-LNG product in Ras Laffan Industrial City (RLIC), the company announced in a statement. Since starting operations in 2006, the dedicated teams at Qatargas have efficiently and reliably loaded more than 4 billion barrels of product to customers all over the world. With demand continuing to grow for the vast array of products produced in RLIC, RLTO is entrusted to handle approximately 1 million barrels of oil equivalent of product every single day, Qatargas said. To mark this important milestone, a ceremony was held onboard the receiving vessel – the LPG tanker ‘Serjeant’. The event was attended by Ahmad Helal al Mohannadi, Chief Operating Officer – North; Fahad al Khater, Chief Operating Officer – South; Abdullah Khalid Idris, Qatargas RLTO Manager; and other senior officials from Qatargas and Ras Laffan Port.A commemorative plaque was presented to the master of the ‘Serjeant’ - Captain CP Gupta, who thanked Qatargas for their trust, and expressed his appreciation for choosing the ‘Serjeant’ as the 10,000th vessel to load from the RLTO facility at Ras Laffan.Qatargas RLTO was launched in 2006 as the single operator responsible for the storage and loading activities of non-LNG hydrocarbon liquids and sulfur produced in RLIC. With one operator managing the safe storage and loading of non-LNG products, significant economies of scale were captured, and personnel were safeguarded with uniform safety standards.The main customers of the services rendered by Qatargas RLTO are Qatar Petroleum, Qatargas, Al Khaleej Gas, Qatar Shell GTL, Dolphin Energy Limited, Laffan Refinery Company Limited 1 and 2, Oryx GTL, Ras Laffan Olefins Company and Barzan. It is anticipated that the number of companies utilising Qatargas RLTO’s services will expand as various growth projects come into fruition, Qatargas said in thestatement.
