We have been involved in Qatar since 1936, in most production areas and the main liquefied natural gas projects. We are also active in the country's petrochemical sector.

Lastly, we are very engaged in community initiatives in Qatar. We support long-term projects in the country to promote education, research, environmental protection and local economic development.

We have a 40% interest in and operate the offshore Al Khalij oil field in Block 6, 130 kilometers east of the Qatari coast.

We hold a 30% stake in the Al-Shaheen concession, located 80 kilometers north of Ras Laffan, through the operator, the North Oil Company (NOC).

We own a 24% interest in the North Field block, part of the gigantic offshore North Field complex.

We have a 24.5% interest in the Dolphin project, which produces, compresses and pipes gas extracted from the North Field for export to the United Arab Emirates and Oman.

At the Qatargas 1 liquefied natural gas (LNG) plant, we have a 10% stake in liquefaction train 2, which has a capacity of 10 million metric tons per year, and a 20% stake in the upstream block, with supplies the plant’s three liquefaction trains.

We also have a 16.7% interest in Qatargas 2’s liquefaction train 5, which has an annual capacity of 8 million metric tons.

Through these interests in the Qatargas 1 and 2 LNG plants and in Dolphin Energy, we contribute to the production, processing and export of North Field gas.

We have entered into several purchase agreements for liquefied natural gas (LNG) produced by Qatargas 1’s train 2, in which we hold a 10% interest, with countries including Spain and Japan. We have also signed purchase agreements for LNG from Qatargas 2’s train 5 (16.7% interest) at a rate of 5.2 million metric tons of LNG annually over 25 years. Today, this production is primarily geared for Asian markets.

We have a 10% interest in the Ras Laffan condensate refinery north of Doha.

We also have a 20% interest and a 49.09% interest in the QAPCO and Qatofin joint ventures, respectively. Their installations are located in Ras Laffan − one of the two ethane crackers owned by QAPCO and RLOC − and in Mesaieed, which has a low-density, linear polyethylene unit (Qatofin), three low-density polyethylene units (QAPCO) and the other ethane cracker.

Through QAPCO, we also hold indirect stakes in Qatar Vinyl Company (QVC) and Qatar Plastics Products Company (QPPC), two downstream joint ventures.

Our affiliate Qatar Branch Office sells some of the polymers made locally by the QAPCO and Qatofin joint ventures in the international market, acting as an agent for Muntajat.
