To support the exploration, storage and export of its vast natural gas resources, in the mid-1990s Qatar made a multi-million dollar investment in port facilities and infrastructure at Ras Laffan. Located 80km north-east of Doha, this thriving, energy-industry hub is home to international companies. RLIC is strategically close to the North Field, lying between the Far East and Europe on the international maritime shipping route.
RLIC's infrastructure and supporting facilities ensure the potential of Qatar's natural resources is maximised through successful exploration, storage and export. Today RLIC is the workplace of approximately 115,000 people.
