Ras Laffan Terminal Operations (RLTO) is responsible for the storage and loading of all non-LNG liquid hydrocarbon products and bulk Sulphur in Ras Laffan Industrial City produced by the various end-users, including QatarEnergy LNG, QatarEnergy, Laffan Refinery, Al Khaleej Gas, Dolphin Energy Limited, Qatar Shell GTL, Oryx GTL, and Ras Laffan Olefins Company.
RLTO handles a wide range of products including condensate and liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) from offshore production, refinery products such as naphtha, jet fuel and diesel, and gas-to-liquids (GTL) production of naphtha, gasoil and base oils. In addition, RLTO also operates the sulphur plant and loads sulphur ships with granulated sulphur.
The facilities currently operated by RLTO include the Common Sulfur Plant, Common Condensate Storage and Loading, Common Liquefied Petroleum Gas, Common Low Sulfur Condensate, Oryx GTL Loading, Qatar Shell GTL Storage & Loading, Port Expansion Project (Fresh Water Fire Fighting System), Volatile Organic Compound, Liquid Products Berths and Laffan Refinery Tank Farm.
Having one single Terminal Operations group enables optimisation of cargo storage and exporting performance. Vessel and berth scheduling is coordinated to provide buyers fast and efficient access to Ras Laffan. Sharing of personnel and resources creates operating expense synergies, benefiting all producers. Moreover, safety risks are also considerably reduced due to a fully integrated, centrally coordinated operation.
