The committee has representation from the Qatar Petroleum group of companies, namely Qatargas, RasGas and Ras Laffan Industrial City. It will be the first time this dynamic group of companies and disciplines to come together to present such a significant achievement, according to the QP spokesman. Close communication and collaboration has begun with other interested stakeholders, including the offices of the Emiri Diwan and company shareholder representatives, ensuring this significant milestone is captured in a way that has never been seen before, the spokesman added.
