Qatar Petroleum (QP) has joined the largest gathering of oil and gas companies in Oman with a strong presence at the 11th Oil and Gas West Asia (OGWA) exhibition and conference. The OGWA exhibition was inaugurated on Sunday by Mohamed bin al-Zubair, Economic Affairs Planning adviser to the Sultan of Oman, at the Oman Convention and Exhibition Centre in Muscat. Al-Zubair visited QP’s exhibition stand together with other top government officials and VIPs, where they were briefed on the corporation’s history as well as some of its most important achievements in the oil and gas industry, as well as on its expanding upstream footprint across the globe.
QP is taking part in the event along with Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat), which serves as the gateway to Qatar’s exports of chemicals and petrochemicals products. QP’s participation at OGWA 2018 comes a few months after the corporation entered into an agreement with Eni of Italy to acquire a 30% participating in the contractor’s interest under the exploration and production sharing agreement for Block 52 offshore Sultanate of Oman. The agreement was signed in November 2017 by Saad Sherida al-Kaabi, QP President and chief executive in the presence of Oman’s Minister of Oil and Gas.
Qatar and Oman also have close links in the oil and gas industry through the Dolphin Gas Project, which processes up to 2bn standard cubic feet per day of natural gas from Qatar’s North Field. The gas is then transported by pipeline and distributed to customers in the UAE and in Oman.
