DOHA: Qatar will begin operations at its Barzan gas project in November, two people close to the matter said, as the country strives to meet rising domestic energy demand as it prepares to host the soccer World Cup in 2022.
The $10bn project is a RasGas-operated joint venture between Qatar Petroleum and Exxon Mobil.
It will boost Qatari gas production by up to 2 billion cubic feet per day when it reaches capacity in the first half of 2017, the sources said.
RasGas and Exxon Mobil representatives were not immediately available to comment.
Qatar, the world’s leading LNG exporter, faces growing domestic energy needs as it pursues a $200bn infrastructure upgrade ahead of the World Cup tournament. Much of the production from Barzan, located in the North Field gas reservoir off the coast of Qatar, will be directed to the power and water sector, RasGas has said.
