Qatar FEED, Multi-product Pipeline

Client: Qatar Petroleum

Mott MacDonald is providing detailed design engineering services and procurement assitance for a multi-product transfer system from the QP refinery in Mesaieed to the Doha depot.

Phase I - The local demand for refined products is expected to grow rapidly due to the ongoing developments in Qatar. Refined products are currently transported by a multi-product transfer system consisting of a pump station at the QP Refinery at Mesaieed, and a 12” pipeline and tank farm at Doha Depot, situated in the Abu Hamour area. The refined products are distributed by road tanker from the Doha Depot to various customers. Multi-products are transported through the pipeline in a batch operation. The pump station, pipeline and depot were commissioned in 1988 with a design capacity of 430m3/hr. WOQOD, a public owned company in which QP is a major share holder, is the asset holder of Doha Depot. WOQOD has published a long term demand forecast for refined products in Qatar up to the year 2024. In order to meet the forecast demand, a new multi-product transfer system is required. QP is planning to do this by putting up a new 18” 46 km multi-product pipeline between QP Refinery and Doha Depot in place of the existing 12” pipelines.

Phase II - The local demand for Jet A1 Fuel will increase due to the construction of New Doha International Airport (NDIA). Jet Fuel is currently transported in the same way described above. From the Doha Depot, it is transported to the existing airport by road tankers. Following commissioning of the new 18” multi-product pipeline, the existing 12” pipeline will become redundant. This 12” pipeline will be utilized, with the additional new extension 12” pipeline, to connect to Jet A1 Fuel Farm at NDIA.

As part of this project the existing 12” Multi-product pipeline will be extended by installing a new 12” pipeline to the New Doha International Airport to supply Jet A1 fuel. The new 12” pipeline will tie-in with the existing 12” MPL pipeline between Doha and Wakrah cities with a new Block Sectionalising Valve BSV-3 and it will be utilized to transport Jet A1 fuel from QP Refinery to the new Airport. The pipeline shall be buried and the approximate length is 9 km.
