UOP and Qatar Petroleum to jointly develop natural gas treating technology

DOHA -- UOP announced that it has signed a joint research and development agreement with Qatar Petroleum (QP) to develop new ways to cost effectively treat natural gas for the production of LNG.

Under the agreement, the two companies will work together to develop more efficient technologies to remove contaminants from natural gas, so that it can be liquefied for transportation by ship and other means.

The agreement was signed at QP headquarters by His Excellency Dr. Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Sada, Minister of Energy and Industry and Chairman of QP, and UOP President and CEO Dr. Rajeev Gautam.

Honeywell' s UOP is a leader in natural gas treating technologies, which are currently used in QP' s LNG and gas processing facilities. QP' s joint venture companies, Qatargas and RasGas, have a combined LNG production capacity of 77 MMtpa, making Qatar the world' s largest producer and exporter of LNG.
