The North Field project was originally announced in September 2018 with the release of a plan to build four 7.8-mtpa trains and bring them online every six months beginning in 2023. In November 2019 Qatar Petroleum announced plans to build two additional 7.8-mtpa trains and commission them by 2027. In April 2020 it was announced that commissioning of the first two trains has been delayed until 2025 due to logistical and economic problems caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.
