RasGas reduces nitrous oxide emissions by 90% in decade-long project


Liquefied natural gas (LNG) producer, RasGas Company Limited (RasGas), has successfully completed a decade-long nitrous oxide (NOx) project, in which the company has slashed its emission intensity by 90%.

The Qatar-based business carried out the Low NOx retrofit programme across Trains 1, 2, 3, 4, as well as Al Khaleej Gas 1 and its associated utilities, reducing NOx emissions by almost 90% compared to levels in 2006.

As part of the project, RasGas introduced General Electric’s (GE) Dry Low NOx technology in 2007 to company’s gas-fired turbines built before 2005.

Additionally, and according to a 2014 Philip Townsend Associates Incorporated benchmarking report, the company’s NOx emissions intensity was better than the LNG industry average by 70% – with RasGas also ranking top of the 14 benchmarked LNG businesses.
