Protecting Qatar’s Gas

Engineering, Procurement & Construction Company & State Energy Company Case Study

Client : CCC, a prime contractor for Qatar Petroleum

Date and Duration : 2008 to Ongoing

Place of Performance :  Ras Laffan City, Qatar


On reaching the Operations & Maintenance phase of the six-year project lifecycle in 2012, we had provided the most technologically comprehensive security solution applied to any Oil and Gas port infrastructure anywhere, through which tens of thousands of people, vehicles and containers can now pass safely and securely every day.


This Ras Laffan Port complex is the world’s largest Liquid Natural Gas (LNG) terminal, the world’s biggest man-made port and one of the world’s most expansive industrial cities.

In 2008 the client sought a premier systems integrator to facilitate and secure a massive port expansion project to accommodate dramatic growth in cargo traffic through the mega-site over the next two decades.

The export terminal’s strategic importance as a critical resource conduit to the east and west defined its need for a state of the art security and surveillance solution.

To that end, Restrata was awarded a $120m contract to provide turnkey, future-proof services including consultancy, engineering, implementation, commissioning, training, and warranty to the project.

The end result is a resilient matrix of enabling and protective technologies. In total, the project generated 745 detailed As-Built Drawings, 247 comprehensive Engineering Documents and 12,600 Inspection Test Records.

2011 saw Restrata enter the final integration phase of the project lifecycle, where the Access Control and Closed Circuit Television systems were integrated into the existing nationwide systems, allowing for the majority of our team of 130 experts to demobilise.

A group of our integration staff will stay behind into 2013 to prime our Operations & Maintenance Team who will now remain on-site to ensure a thorough handover process for another two years.
