HE the Minister of State for Energy Affairs Saad bin Sherida al-Kaabi, also the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, held talks in Washington DC with Rick Perry, the US Secretary of Energy (pictured). The talks centred on co-operation between Qatar and the United States in the field of energy, particularly in the LNG industry. Al-Kaabi and Perry also discussed Qatar Petroleum’s final investment decision for developing the Golden Pass LNG export project in Sabine Pass, Texas. The meeting came as Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil signed the investment agreement, paving the way for the construction of the Golden Pass LNG export facility, which will have a production capacity of about 16mn tonnes of LNG a year. Al-Kaabi held similar talks with Frank Fannon, US Assistant Secretary of State for Energy Affairs, on various aspects of energy co-operation.
