RAS LAFFAN, QATAR: Qatar Petroleum (QP) and Shell have launched the logo of the Al-Karaana Petrochemicals Complex in Ras Laffan Industrial City and also announced the award of the project’s Front-End Engineering and Design (FEED) contract to Fluor, a global engineering construction company.

The scope under consideration for the Al-Karaana Petrochemical Complex project includes the following - a world-scale steam cracker, with feedstock coming from natural gas projects in Qatar; a 1.5 million tonne per annum mono-ethylene glycol plant using Shell’s proprietary OMEGA (Only MEG Advantaged) technology; a 300 thousand tonne per annum linear alpha olefin unit using the proprietary Shell Higher Olefins Process; and a 250 thousand tonne per annum OXO alcohols unit.

“QP and Shell worked closely together to reach this important project milestone. The focus of the project team is on the delivery of a quality FEED that will be a major step towards successfully delivering this project which is an important part of our overall petrochemical development plan. We are delighted to have awarded the integrated FEED contract to Fluor, a world-class engineering company with a proven track record and expect Fluor to deliver FEED work of the highest quality and standards in industry,” said Mohammed Nasser Al-Hajri, Chairman of the project’s Executive Committee and Downstream Ventures Director, QP.
