QatarEnergy LNG, previously known as Qatargas, awarded more than $3 billion in contracts to Saipem in 2021 related to the North Field production sustainability offshore project.

In 2022, Saipem also won a contract worth about $4.5 billion from the unit of state-owned LNG giant QatarEnergy related to the North Field production sustainability offshore compression complexes project.

QatarEnergy LNG operates 14 LNG production trains with a capacity of about 77 mtpa in Ras Laffan.

QatarEnergy is currently building the North Field East and North Field South expansion projects.

The LNG giant officially started construction on its North Field expansion project in the giant Ras Laffan complex in October last year.

QatarEnergy’s partners in the project are Shell, ConocoPhillips, ExxonMobil, TotalEnergies, Eni, Sinopec, and CNPC.

The project includes six mega trains, each with a production capacity of 8 mtpa of LNG, four of which are part of the North Field East expansion project, and two are part of the North Field South expansion project.

Bedies these projects, the company also recently announced the third North Field expansion phase to boost Qatar’s capacity to 142 mtpa.
