Qatar Gas Transport Company Ltd. (Nakilat) has been awarded the "Sword of Honour" by British Safety Council for the second consecutive year, a prestigious award for organizations that have reached the pinnacle of excellence in managing the company's health, safety and environmental risks.

The ceremonial sword was received at a ceremony held recently in London in the presence of senior officials and heads of international companies.

Nakilat was one of 84 organisations worldwide that achieved a Sword of Honour, awarded to companies which have demonstrated excellence in the management of health and safety risks at work.

In order to compete for the Sword of Honour, the organisation first had to achieve the maximum five stars in the British Safety Council's health, safety and environmental management audit scheme in the period August 2018 - July 2019. Nakilat has also demonstrated to an independent panel of experts its excellence in health, safety and environmental management throughout the business - from the shop'-floor to the boardroom.

Nakilats Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Eng. Abdullah Al Sulaiti said:

"This award is a proud moment for everyone at Nakilat. We are very pleased to receive this award for the second consecutive year. It bears testimony to our commitment to operate at the highest international standards and effectively manage occupational health, safety, environment, and employee well-being within the organization, as outlined in our mission statement to safely, reliably and efficiently provide shipping and maritime services."
"We are raising the bar higher when it comes to managing occupational health and safety at Nakilat, by setting stringent targets and higher standards than benchmarked industry average. Our comprehensive Incident and Injury Free (IIF) campaign is a clear indication of what can be achieved when we work together to ensure everyone gets home safe, be it our employees, clients or stakeholders. Nakilat strives to balance the environmental and social needs aspects of sustainability, steered by excellence in safety and health to drive improvement in the workplace, as aligned with the values espoused in Qatar National Vision 2030 and our vision to be global leader and provider of choice for energy transportation and maritime services."

Lawrence Waterman, Chairman of the British Safety Council, congratulated Nakilat on achieving the very highest standards of health, safety and environmental management, noting that excellence at this level is very hard won.

Nakilat is a Qatari LNG transport company providing the essential transportation link in Qatar's LNG supply chain. Its LNG shipping fleet is the largest in the world, comprising of 69 LNG vessels. Nakilat also owns and manages one FSRU vessel and four large LPG carriers.
