Qatargas and RasGas are currently attending the 2017 Gastech Conference and Exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. The joint delegation headed by Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa al-Thani, Qatargas chief executive officer; and Hamad Mubarak al-Muhannadi, RasGas chief executive officer; also includes senior leaders from both the organizations. On the opening day of the conference, Sheikh Khalid joined a prominent energy leadership panel to discuss “How are gas suppliers adapting to the changing global market”. The widely anticipated panel discussion allowed energy leaders to highlight the unique position of LNG as a safe and reliable energy of choice for consumers all over the world.Expressing optimism over the future of the LNG industry, Sheikh Khalid said, “Natural gas remains the fastest growing fossil fuel globally, benefiting from its flexibility in multiple demand segments, its competitive economics and low emissions profile. LNG is well-positioned for substantial growth as countries around the world continue to look for ways to reduce their carbon footprint by replacing heavier polluting fossil fuel. Long-term growth prospects remain positive as traditional markets expand, new markets emerge, and new technologies and applications evolve.” He added: “Qatargas will continue to apply the best proven technologies to further increase reliability, enhance safety, and operate in an environmentally responsible manner.”Sheikh Khalid noted that Qatargas recently celebrated the 20th anniversary of the first LNG cargo from Qatar to Japan. “Since then, Qatargas has safely delivered more than 2,600 cargoes of clean, reliable energy to our esteemed Japanese friends and partners.” Qatargas will also present two technical papers during the conference. These will be presented by Khalifa Ahmed al-Sulaiti, Safety and Risk manager and Abu Bakar Usman, Senior Rotating Equipment engineer.Throughout the exhibition, Qatargas and RasGas showcased the capabilities and talent of the Qatari energy industry alongside Qatar Petroleum and Nakilat. With more than 25,000 visitors and 600 exhibitors at this years’ event, Gastech is a key event for the international oil and gas industry, and a global meeting place for energy professionals working in the natural gas cycle.
