Emphasising a future vision for Qatar’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry, QatarEnergy is pleased to announce that Qatargas has changed its name to ‘QatarEnergy LNG’.

With a new name and logo, QatarEnergy LNG will continue to deliver on its commitment to safety, environmental protection, flawless project delivery and the reliability and efficiency of its production facilities.

This exciting landmark comes as part of the increasing international recognition of Qatar’s role in meeting the world’s growing need for energy, particularly natural gas – the cleanest of all fossil fuels. It also reflects QatarEnergy’s continued commitment to LNG as a critical source of energy for decades to come and a vital enabler of the energy transition.

Historic evolution of Qatar’s energy sector

Minister of State for Energy Affairs and Qatar President and CEO HE Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, highlighted the importance of this transformation as part of a historic evolution that is reshaping Qatar’s energy industry, particularly through the flagship LNG sector.

HE Minister Al-Kaabi also hailed the leading role that Qatargas has played over the past four decades. He said that over the course of 39 years, Qatargas has been a pioneer of the LNG industry, helping place the State of Qatar firmly on the global LNG map and enhancing its leading position as a safe, reliable and trustworthy LNG supplier.

Today, ‘QatarEnergy LNG’ carries this legacy forward well into the 21st century, helping meet the world’s growing energy demand, placing LNG at the centre of a realistic energy transition, and playing a critical role in safeguarding energy security and eliminating energy poverty.

Minister Al-Kaabi added that while they recognise the tremendous value that the Qatargas brand has accumulated over time, he said they believe that this evolution will further strengthen Qatar’s global position by creating and leveraging a stronger salient link to the QatarEnergy brand to deliver even more value to the State of Qatar, its customers and the broader stakeholders’ ecosystem.

In this context, he said they are reaffirming their belief in the future of LNG as a primary source of energy for decades to come and placing greater emphasis on the central position LNG occupies in the country’s strategic priorities, development efforts and energy investments.

Concluding his remarks, the minister also underscored how proud they are of Qatargas, its people and its legacy and achievements over the past 39 years and they look forward to a new era under the new name and brand that will herald new achievements and greater gains for the LNG industry and for stakeholders across the globe.

Established in 1984 as Qatargas, QatarEnergy LNG is a unique global energy operator in terms of size, service and reliability. It currently operates 14 LNG production trains and is at the centre of QatarEnergy’s efforts to raise Qatar’s LNG production capacity to 126 million tonnes per annum.
