Persian Gulf emirate Qatar will invest about $13 billion to boost liquid natural gas production
by 40 percent, according to a Monsters and Critics report.
Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil Corp. jointly formed Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Co., or RasGas, to supply a soon-to-be built LNG re-gasification terminal on the U.S. Gulf of Mexico coast. Recently, RasGas let contracts for an expansion of Ras Laffan Industrial City facilities that will process natural gas from Qatar`s giant North Field, according to the report.
Among those contracts is one awarded to Fluor Corp. for engineering, procurement and construction management in the building of six LNG trains. The Fluor contract has a potential value of about $1 billion.
