Since Qatar's North Field Gas Reservoir was discovered in 1971, several feasibility studies on an LNG export scheme have been conducted. These studies have lead to the formation in 1984 of the Qatar Liquefied Gas Company, Ltd., a joint venture which is now between Qatar General Petroleum Corporation (QGPC), Total, Marubeni, Mitsui, and Mobil.

North Field, is a large non-associated gas reservoir that covers 6,000 square kilometers and lies up to 80 km offshore to the North east of the Qatar peninsula, in water depths of 15 to 70 meters. Its Certified reserves exceed 200 MMMSCF.

A three phase development plan was established by QGPC. While QGPC began to implement Phase 1 to produce 800 MMSCFD gas for domestic consumption and 1.65 million tonnes of LPG/condensate for export, Qatargas embarked on developing Phase II, the LNG phase, a Project for the export of up to 6 million tonnes of LNG to Japan.

At present Phase I, developed by QGPC, has been in full production for over a year and on Phase II Qatargas is about to complete Basic Engineering for a 4 million tonnes LNG plant expandable to 6 million tonnes and soon to enter its detailed engineering procurement and construction with the objective to deliver the first LNG cargo to a Japanese Utility Company Chubu by January 1997.

The following chapters describe the development of the LNG Plant program giving highlights on the interfaces such as upstream, site infrastructure and port construction, shipping, and finally description of the LNG receiving terminal in Japan.
