Apr 07, 2021 06:26:19 AM

Client: Qatar Petroleum
Place of performance: Ras Laffan City, Qatar  
Date and duration: April 2011 – November 2011 
Value of contract: Over $115M 


Ras Laffan Industrial City (RLC), situated along the northeast coast of Qatar, is one of the fastest growing industrial cities in the world. 

With the anticipated volumes of cargo set to increase dramatically, the new port development is the key to the delivery of these cargoes to various parts of the world. The new port will be a world class facility, constructed in phases to accommodate the developing industries that are expected to operate in the industrial city. This phase consists of the new LNG berths, liquid cargo berth, dry docks as well as repair yards.  

The dredging, reclamation and breakwaters will form part of a single contract that will enclose the area around the port. This land enhancement will include access for utilities and services for the new berths to be constructed within the port. The berths will be built on an incremental basis, with provision for at least the next 20 years. Provision has also been made for industries that are likely to be based in Ras Laffan.
