In response to the recent unfortunate developments in the region, Qatar Petroleum (QP) and its subsidiaries have immediately mobilised all its available resources and activated its business continuity plans  to mitigate the impact of any action that could hamper its efforts to ensure safe and reliable energy supplies to all its customers across the globe.

Qatar Petroleum and its subsidiaries affirmed that it’s ‘business as usual’ throughout all its upstream, midstream and downstream businesses and operations, and in all activities across all of QP’s world-class facilities. They said they are closely monitoring and assessing all developments, and are prepared to take the necessary decisions and measures should the need arise, to ensure that they honour their commitments and obligations to all customers and partners anywhere in the world.

Qatar Petroleum reiterated that they remain committed to the company’s international reputation as a trustworthy, stable and reliable global energy producer and provider, and is confident that it will continue to live up to this reputation.

QP President and CEO Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi expressed his deepest gratitude to all his colleagues at Qatar Petroleum, to the entire oil and gas sector in the State of Qatar, as well as QP’s international partners and service providers for their resilient efforts during the past few days, which helped mitigate the initial difficulties caused by the recent developments.

Al-Kaabi expressed his gratitude on behalf of QP, to all their valued customers, particularly to the LNG customers. He assured them of their ‘determined efforts’ to continue uninterrupted supplies as the world’s most reliable LNG supplier. Qatar is the largest LNG producer and exporter, contributing to more than 30% of the global LNG trade and supplying customers in all major LNG consuming countries in the world.

Qatar is also a major exporter of Natural Gas by pipeline to neighbouring countries. In addition, Qatar is the largest exporter of Helium and Gas to Liquid products (GTL), and a major exporter of natural gas liquids (NGL), refined products, petrochemicals, fertilisers, steel and aluminium.

It is worth noting that many consuming countries in the world rely on Qatar’s LNG supplies for their vital power generation and other energy requirements to fuel their economy and satisfy the needs of their people.

These countries include:   

  • Asia: Japan, South Korea, India, China, Pakistan, Taiwan, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia
  • Europe: United Kingdom, Belgium, France, Italy, Turkey, Poland, Spain, Netherlands, Portugal
  • Americas: Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Dominican Republic, Mexico
