Laffan Refinery is a key part of Qatar's strategic vision to process and add value to the field condensate produced from the Qatargas facilities. With two world-class refineries located in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatargas is one of the largest condensate processors in the world.​​


Laffan Refinery 1 (LR1) captures synergies and opportunities from the development of the North Field, Qatargas and other Ras Laffan Industrial City ventures. ​​​It consists of process units including utility systems, distillation units, naphtha and kerosene hydrotreaters, a hydrogen unit and a saturated gas plant producing naphtha, kerojet (A1), gasoil and mixed LPG.​

LR1 processes condensate, an associated product to natural gas production that is refined into a number of high-quality products which can be used as lower emission fuels and feedstock for petrochemical production. All products are hydro-treated to reduce the content of sulphur, meeting the most stringent quality standards (Euro V).

The refinery, which started production in 2009, has a proc​essing capacity of 146,000 barrels per stream day (bpsd) and utilises the field condensate produced from the Qatargas facilities. The Laffan Refinery has a production capacity of 61,000 bpsd of naphtha, 52,000 bpsd of kerojet, 24,000 bpsd of gasoil, and 9,000 bpsd of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG).​

Shareholders in the Laffan Refinery 1 are: Qatar Petroleum (51%), Total (10%), ExxonMobil (10%), Cosmo (10%), Idemitsu (10%), Mitsui (4.5%) and Marubeni (4.5%).​​


Laffan Refinery 2 (LR2) started commercial production in 2016, marking the culmination of a strategic expansion of Qatargas' world-class facilities in Ras Laffan Industrial City. LR2 adds a processing capacity of 146,000 barrels per stream day to the existing LR1, effectively doubling the total processing capacity to 292,000 barrels per stream day.

Laffan Refinery 2 produces low sulphur Euro-V specifications products such as naphtha, kerojet (A-1), ultra-low sulphur diesel, propane and butane for local and international markets.​

The shareholders of LR 2 are:   Qatar Petroleum (84%), Total (10%), Cosmo (2%), Idemitsu (2%), Mitsui (1%) and Marubeni (1%).​
