Through the hard work of all those involved in the project, from construction contractors, to operators and engineers, Shell managed 77 million man hours on site without a ‘Loss Time Injury’. This is a record in the Middle East for the construction sector as well for the oil and gas industry. It has created a fantastic legacy for the project, for Shell as a Global Company, but also for the State of Qatar. This film documents that story from a personal level, from perspective of contractors and the Shell Team, while exploring the business reasons behind the goal.
The Pearl GTL project in Ras Laffan industrial city was the largest project in the oil and gas industry; at its peak it had a workforce of over 50,000 on site at any one time. Shell embarked on an HSSE journey that had never been attempted in the industry before – the goal was to work free of accidents and injuries.
