His Excellency Dr. Mohammed Bin Saleh Al-Sada welcomed the signing of the SPA as “another milestone in Qatar’s standing as a reliable international energy supplier.” Dr. Al-Sada said “This is a ground-breaking agreement between two well established and leading companies in the LNG sector, which further strengthens the existing relationship between Qatargas and PETRONAS.”

“Qatari LNG continues to play a key role in supporting efforts by countries around the world to diversify their energy supplies using gas as an environmentally friendly source of energy,” Dr. Al-Sada concluded.

Qatargas’ Chief Executive officer, Khalid Bin Khalifa Al Thani, also added, “I am delighted that Qatargas has succeeded in increasing its customer base and global LNG reach.
