LNG is odorless, colorless, non-toxic and non-corrosive.
The Qatargas 2 (QG2) project was the world's first fully integrated value chain LNG venture. It includes two world class LNG mega trains (Train 4 and Train 5) each with a capacity of 7.8 mtpa of LNG and 0.85 mtpa liquefied petroleum gas (LPG), condensate production of 90,000 barrels per day (bpd), a fleet of 14 Q-Flex and Q-Max ships and Europe's largest LNG receiving terminal, the South Hook
