RasGas warehouse in Ras Laffan has recently celebrated its completion of 1mn man-hours without a lost time incident (LTI) over a span of seven years.

RasGas CEO Hamad Rashid al-Mohannadi said, “As a world-class energy supplier striving for excellence, the safety record established by our warehouse demonstrates RasGas’ continuous commitment to excellence in every aspect of our operations. Safety is a core value in RasGas and implementing safe work behaviour is an integral part of our day-to-day actions.”

Al-Mohannadi stressed that warehousing is a vital link in RasGas’ supply chain in ensuring the continuity of the company’s operations. It includes the maintenance of stock levels and safekeeping of equipment and supplies.

He noted that the complexity involved in the natural gas industry’s warehouse environment makes it among the highest LTI rates in other industries. Al-Mohannadi also confirmed that “RasGas never compromises on safety and that the well-being of all its employees remains a primary focus.”

“This milestone demonstrates RasGas’ warehouse team’s ability to establish a strong culture of safety awareness while achieving the highest standards in the areas of inventory management and procurement,” al-Mohannadi said.

RasGas chief safety, health, environment and quality officer Brett Doherty said, “Achieving such significant milestones of zero incidents is only possible with our employees’ constant awareness of workplace hazards and approaching them in a safe and responsible manner.”

Supply Department manager Abdulla al-Mahmoud, who is responsible for the warehouse, said RasGas adheres to stringent safety measures approved by the ministries of Civil Defence and Environment, from material loading and unloading, to chemical handling and storage, racking and shelving, and use of the laydown area.

Al-Mahmoud said RasGas’ warehouse in Ras Laffan provides support and services for all internal and external user departments, including the onshore and offshore facilities, storing vital equipment for LNG Trains 1 to 7, Al Khaleej Gas 1 and 2, and Helium 1 and 2 projects.
