The MEG facility will be part of a new petrochemicals complex in Ras Laffan Industrial City being developed by a joint venture of Qatar Petroleum and Shell. The two-train MEG facility, based on Shell's OMEGA technology, is planned to produce 1.5 million tonnes per annum of MEG.
Foster Wheeler was the front-end engineering design and engineering, procurement and construction management contractor for Shell’s OMEGA-based MEG plant on Jurong Island in Singapore, officially opened on 11 December 2009.

“Our team for the Qatar MEG project will include key members of the team which successfully delivered the Singapore project. We will leverage our understanding of Shell’s OMEGA process, and our experience and lessons learned from the Singapore project, which was the largest OMEGA facility built to date, to deliver a high quality basic engineering package for our client.”
