Message from the President & CEO



Welcome to the Qatar Petroleum website.

The State of Qatar is moving with great resolve and determination on the road of development and prosperity under the wise leadership of His Highness the Emir, Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani. It is managing and utilizing its hydrocarbon resources to build a modern infrastructure and a sustainable knowledge-based economy.

In this effort, Qatar Petroleum as the custodian and developer of the oil and gas resources is at the forefront in helping to achieve Qatar’s vision for sustainable social, economic, human, and environmental development.

Qatar Petroleum is resolved to achieve its strategic objectives to become one of the leading national oil corporations in the world, and to ensure the reinforcement of Qatar’s continued economic growth and expansion through optimized and safe operations, and assets integrity.

The wide spectrum of our oil and gas activities, has but one aim: the future of Qatar and its people. Our purpose is well aligned with the objectives of Qatar’s National Vision 2030, particularly the wise management of exhaustible resources in order to sustain prosperity and “ensure that future generations inherit ample means to meet their aspirations.”

We continue the sustainable development of Qatar’s rich natural gas resources and  re-entrench its position as the world’s largest, safest and most reliable LNG producer.

We are redeveloping our maturing oil fields to reach the longest possible plateau of sustainable production levels to support Qatar’s energy needs and economic development.

We are also creating favorable conditions for the growth and development of a wide array of refining and downstream industries and products.

Despite the weight and volume of our task, we have never taken our eyes off the need to protect and preserve the environment, and the commitment to developing national human resources. We have also given preeminence to education, training, and career development in our quest to develop a new generation of professionals that will lead this great corporation into the future.

Qatar Petroleum is proud to be a deep-rooted corporate citizen of Qatar, maintaining a dynamic proactive engagement in our society, and a major contributor towards human development at home and abroad through the promotion of education, training, and research.

And as we enter our 5th decade, we are more determined than ever to live up to the legacy of all those who made Qatar Petroleum what it is today, and to the expectations of a whole new generation of Qataris who will take Qatar Petroleum into a successful and prosperous future.
