The Qatari Energy Minister Abdullah Al Attiyah officially opened Qatar’s latest and largest LNG plant at Ras Laffan. It is estimated that the plant will be able to produce around 7.8 millions tonnes of LNG per year. The sheer size of the plant helps it tremendously with economies of scale, producing each tonne of LNG at cheaply as possible. The site is also able to accommodate the latest and largest generation of LNG ships (roughly the size of an aircraft carrier) which, with a mobile cooling station on board, extends its span across the world and saves on the LNG dissipating into the ether.
