Shell is building two of the largest energy projects in the world with Qatar Petroleum in Ras Laffan Industrial City.
Qatargas 4 is Shell’s first entry into Qatar’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector and brings to seven the number of countries where Shell participates in LNG supply projects. A single LNG train is set to yield approximately 7.8 million tonnes per annum of LNG.
Technology is at the heart of everything Shell does. In Qatar we are an anchor tenant at the Qatar Science & Technology Park, a home for technology-based companies from around the world. We are committed to invest up to $100 million over 10 years on a world-class research and development programme at our facility there, which we call the Qatar Shell Research & Technology Centre.
Shell was appointed as the shipping and maritime services provider for Qatar Gas Transport Company’s (Nakilat) fleet of some 25 newbuild liquefied natural gas (LNG) carriers under a Master Services Agreement, effective from November 2006.
Under the Technical Services Agreement that Shell has signed with Qatar Petroleum in August 2007, Shell is sharing best practices with various directorates within Qatar Petroleum.
