A high level delegation from Qatar Petroleum took part in the 27th World Gas Conference (WGC 2018), held in Washington, DC this week, led by its president and CEO Saad Sherida Al Kaabi, Qatargas CEO Sheikh Khalid Bin Khalifa Al Thani, and a number of senior executives from both companies.
Al Kaabi had earlier participated in a high-level panel discussion on the challenges and opportunities facing the global gas industry, where he stressed QP’s commitment to move forward with its plans to increase the country’s LNG output from 77 million to 100 million tonnes per year.

Qatar Petroleum and Qatargas also joined the exhibition organised on the sidelines of the conference. QP’s pavilion showcased developments, activities, and projects, as well as recent advances in Qatar’s gas industry. It also featured the comprehensive activities of Qatargas, among the event’s ‘Global Sponsors’.
The importance of Qatar’s participation to this international event stems from the fact that it is the world’s largest LNG producer, and has the third largest gas reserve in the world. It is also the global capital of gas-to-liquids (GTL) products and home to the world’s largest single non-associated gas field.
Held under the theme ‘Fueling the Future’, WGC 2018 brought together the influential leaders, major players, policymakers and thousands of industry professionals for an in-depth discussion of the latest developments in the global gas industry. The event is held every three years with the mission ‘to advocate gas as an integral part of a sustainable global energy system and to promote the political, technical and economic progress of the gas industry’.
