Ahmad Saif Al Sulaiti, Operations Manager at Dukhan Fields, said that construction of the projects on the field included in the 2009 budget were well on their way. Al Sulaiti said that there were intensified efforts to finalise the geographical survey done for the mega projects in the Dukhan Fields, which have begun last March, and are expected to be finished by 2011. Dukhan area is undergoing a number infrastructure and services projects, and are being fitted with the latest equipment and machinery in the oil and gas fields. Dukhan currently produces 250,000 barrels of oil a day, and Al Sulaiti says that the area has a lot of potential due to its rich natural resources of oil and gas. “The management is currently putting together a number of programmes to develop human talent working on the field, and are being trained both inside and outside of the country” said Al Sulaiti. “The aim of these programmes is to keep our workers up-to-date with the latest global technologies in the oil and gas industry”. Dukhan is notably one of the most significant fields in the country, due to the fact that the first oil well discovered in Qatar was on that field in 1938. Over the years the area has grown from being a small oil extracting complex, to a large scale city, which includes the biggest industrial complex in the energy industry, as well a some of the country’s cleanest and most beautiful beaches. Qatar Petroleum, as well as governmental and investment authorities have been heavily investing in the area’s infrastructure and real estate, with investment amounting to over QR5bn.
