About Us

Qatar is a peninsula of 11.437 sq. Km. located halfway down the west coast of the Arabian Gulf. The Emir, His Highness Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani, is the ruler of Qatar and is the head of the constitutional authorities, holding both legislative and executive powers.

Oil and gas have given Qatar one of the highest per capita incomes in the world and made it one of the fastest-growing economies. Displaying an enlightened approach to prosperity, Qatar is channeling its wealth not into trophy assets but into funding the advancement of culture, science, and education. Its strategic path towards a post-hydrocarbon economy will be through a vibrant, knowledge-based society.

Energetic and ambitious, the State of Qatar has emerged from virtual anonymity to become one of the most forward-thinking nations in the Middle-East, with increasing regional and global influence. Latest estimates put Qatar’s population at more than 1.5 million.

By 2030, Qatar aims to be an advanced society capable of sustaining its development and providing a high standard of living for all of its people. Qatar’s National Vision defines the long-term outcomes for the country and provides a framework within which national strategies and implementation plans can be developed.


Our strategy is designed to help us define our ambition, where we wish to invest, the priorities for improvement and implementation plans as we enter this new era of growth.

  • It revolves around six major themes:
  • ​strengthen QP’s technical capability,
  • ​​maximize upstream value to State of Qatar,
  • ​create a large-scale value-adding international portfolio,
  • ​​re-inforce Qatar’s LNG & global gas position,
  • ​maximize downstream added value, and
  • ​​promote energy efficiency & optimum energy mix in Qatar.​
