FUCARE serving Qatar Laffan Refinery Phase II project



After comprehensive evaluation to the rapid blast valves and dampers by FUCARE and by other suppliers, the project engineering contractor and owner finally selected FUCARE products for all facilities which require high level protection against blast waves.


FUCARE's rapid blast valves/dampers are featured on very low penetrating impulse against blast waves with high peak pressure (Up to 2 bar reflected) and long duration ( 40ms ). This means more safety margin when FUCARE's rapid valves or rapid dampers are applied.


Laffan refinery project is one of the largest refinery projects in the world. Qatar Petroleum have 84 percent stake in the project. The ownership structure of the partners are as follows: Total (10 percent), Idemitsu (2 percent), Cosmo (2 percent), Marubeni (1 percent) and Mitsui (1 percent).


With a condensate processing capacity of 146,000 barrels per day, the LR2 is the second of its kind to be built in Qatar since Laffan Refinery 1 (LR1) was inaugurated in 2009. The LR1 and LR2 will be together capable of delivering 40 percent of Qatar's total condensate production. The construction of LR2 is expected to be completed in the second half of 2016.


The new LR2 condensate refinery is similar to LR1, with a similar processing capacity of 146,000 barrels per day. It will be operated by Qatargas Operating Company Limited (Qatargas) and will have a daily production capacity of 60,000 barrels of naphtha, 53,000 barrels of jet fuel, 24,000 barrels of gasoil, and 9,000 barrels of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).


It will give Ras Laffan a total installed condensate refining capacity of about 300,000 barrels per day, making it one of the largest single facilities of its kind in the world.
