Qatargas has announced that as of August 2021 the Common Sulfur Plant (CSP) operated by RLTO & Refining was able to reach in excess of 10 000 tpd of processed sulfur.

CSP, located in Ras Laffan Industrial City, serves as one of the world's largest sulfur processing plants. Sulfur is extracted in liquid form from natural gas that flows from the North Field into multiple gas plants based in Ras Laffan. CSP converts this liquid sulfur into solid granules for temporary storage, then ships it to markets around the world where it is used for fertilizer and other valuable products.

?The milestone of 10 000 tpd is an especially important achievement since attaining this level of processing was mission critical for various operators based in Ras Laffan.

CSP was successful in expanding its operating scope to include additional sulfur generated from Barzan while managing the introduction of two new granulators.

Khalid bin Khalifa Al Thani, CEO, Qatargas, stated: “In recognition of attaining this business-critical milestone, I wish to extend my congratulations to all those involved in the delivery of this important mission for CSP. The personnel in CSP Operations, Maintenance, Production Planning, Engineering, Projects, Business Scheduling, as well as our contractors, asset leadership, sulfur producers in Ras Laffan and world-wide customers, have all contributed to this success."

The Qatargas CEO added: “Thank you to our talented team for helping us attain this amazing milestone and realizing this proud moment in CSP's history. I look forward to achieving our next future milestone and building upon our collective success."
