Ras Laffan Petrochemical Project Readies for Early Site Works

QatarEnergy and Chevron Phillips Chemical’s joint venture Ras Laffan Petrochemical Project, also known as RLPP, took a new step closer to development this week with a contract in place for early site works with Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC).

Consolidated Contractors Company (CCC) was chosen as the early site works contractor after being awarded a lump-sum contract to prepare for this new facility within the Ras Laffan Industrial City. This slated work will begin in June, and then lead to an eventual EPC contract as the next step.

In regard to this new contract award, Mr Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs for Qatar and the president and CEO of QatarEnergy said that “The award of this contract marks the start of the execution phase of RLPP, which is a major building block in QatarEnergy’s efforts to further expand and diversify its business portfolio and implement world-class downstream project. This project will increase Qatar’s polyethylene output capacity by approximately 64%.”

The Ras Laffan Petrochemical Project was first announced in 2019 and expected to begin production in 2026. The project will center around a nearly 2 MMtpy ethane cracker unit, expected to be the largest of its kind in the Middle East. The RLPP is also plotting two high density polyethylene units as well.
