Shell in Qatar (PDF, 494 Kb)
February 23, 2011
One of Shell’s most extensive endeavors, the Pearl GTL (gas to liquids) Project in Qatar was contracted through JK – a joint venture between JGC and KBR – and in collaboration with Qatar Petroleum. When completed, Pearl GTL will be the largest GTL plant on the planet. But Shell had a particular need: 3,500 new workers had to be housed, and Shell’s main accommodation camp was already full. What’s more, this wasn’t just any location. The activity in Ras Laffan Industrial City is very intense and you can’t just go shopping around for new facilities in such a desert environment. Shell would settle for nothing less than an ultra-reactive partner like Sodexo able to mobilize a new camp efficiently, while delivering the highest-quality operation and maintenance services possible.
