Zekreet Phase II EIA
Qatar Gas intended to install a gasoline complex in RLIC, the primary purpose of which is the production of gasoline with co-products of hydrogen, C3 liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) and C4 LPG. WKC undertook environmental services, including baseline studies, air and noise modelling, Best Available Technology (BAT) cost benefit analysis and permitting through the preparation of the project’s EIA.
RLIC Ecology Baseline Surveys
WKC completed a series of baseline surveys in order to determine pre-development conditions for two sites, totalling an area of approximately 1,700 hectares. The Project itself covered areas which included a number of habitat types and important plant and animal species.
AAQM Station Audits for Qatar Petroleum (now Qatar Energy)
WKC was appointed by Qatar Petroleum (now Qatar Energy) to undertake a 3rd Party Technical Systems & Data Quality Audit for three stations within their ambient monitoring network. The overall objective of the study was to provide assurance to Qatar Energy that the ambient air quality monitoring stations (AAQMS) considered within the audit are producing data that is reliable and accurate by ensuring that the current maintenance, operation and management practices conform to adequate standards and that the Qatar Energy AAQMS Quality Assurance Quality Control Plan is being fully implemented.
C2 Doha Expressway Noise Modelling
WKC was commissioned to undertake noise modelling and impact assessments for the construction and operation of road upgrades/improvements in three suburbs of Doha. Using topographic, land use and traffic flow input data we were able to predict the impact of the road improvements on the surrounding environment and at noise sensitive receptors.
RLIC Emissions Inventory
Our team led the development of a complete emissions inventory covering all sectors for Ras Laffan Emission souths (approximately 300). This included conventional combustion sources such as turbines, flares, heaters and boilers, but additional fugitive sources and storage related VOCs. The key objective of the inventory was to support the development of photochemical modelling to determine the contribution of industrial emissions to secondary photochemical pollutant formation (such as ozone).
Laffan Condensate Refinery EIA
Our team led the development of the EIA for the Laffan Condensate Refinery, including Engineering Liaison role with Technip, and air quality impact assessment using Aermod. The project involved a scoping presentation to the Supreme Council of Qatar State Authority. Naphtha products from the Laffan Refinery emerged as feedstock for the ZEKREET project noted above, although the project did not proceed beyond FEED stage.
