Qatar Petroleum held its second ‘Mustaqbalna’ Forum, which gave 450 Qatari nationals the opportunity to engage with the company’s executive leadership team.

Mustaqbalna (meaning ‘our future’ in Arabic) is designed to define the role of young Qatari employees in shaping the future of Qatar Petroleum and in ensuring its continued growth and success.

The two-day event was held under the theme Empowerment. It featured an interactive format that enabled participants to discuss how being empowered can make a positive difference in their career to effectively contribute to the growth and development of Qatar Petroleum.

Addressing the participants, Minister of State for Energy Affairs and QP President and CEO Saad Sherida Al Kaabi, highlighted the importance of dedication and perseverance for professional advancement and effective leadership.

I am pleased to see this great level of engagement with the leadership team, which helps you get a feel of what is going on in terms of strategy and direction, and of the values we stand for at Qatar Petroleum.’

Al Kaabi drew on his own experience and the challenges he faced in over three decades. He told the participating young Qataris not to give up their dreams and to never stop trying.

Your success is in your own hands. You need to be determined, resilient and patient, and to have a clear aim and a focused vision. There is no doubt that you will be rewarded for your good work. I am very happy to learn that the vast majority of Qataris that we have now have the mindset for Qatar and what is best for its future.’

According to Al Kaabi, Qatar Petroleum is moving forward with great strides and determination to become one of the best national oil and gas companies in the world.

We are enhancing our business growth strategy, expanding our international footprint, and consolidating our capabilities to assume our rightful place in the oil and gas industry. Having said that, I must stress that the only reason we have been so successful is because we have great people working to implement that strategy.’

The forum featured a question-and-answer session with members of the QP Executive Leadership Team and other senior officials. The session provided an opportunity for participating Qatari nationals to ask questions related to their careers and professional development, the current operations and ongoing projects of QP, and its strategic plans for the future.
