World Oil Staff September 14, 2023

​(WO) – Emphasizing a future vision for Qatar’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) industry, QatarEnergy announced that Qatargas has changed its name to “QatarEnergy LNG."

With a new name and logo, “QatarEnergy LNG” will continue to deliver on its commitment to safety, environmental protection, project delivery and the reliability and efficiency of its production facilities.

This announcement comes as part of the increasing international recognition of Qatar’s role in meeting the world's growing need for energy, particularly natural gas. It also reflects QatarEnergy’s continued commitment to LNG as a critical source of energy for decades to come and a vital enabler of the energy transition.

His Excellency Minister Al-Kaabi said, “Over the course of 39 years, Qatargas has been a pioneer of the LNG industry, helping place the State of Qatar firmly on the global LNG map and enhancing its leading position as a safe, reliable and trustworthy LNG supplier. Today, ‘QatarEnergy LNG’ carries this legacy forward well into the 21st century helping meet the world’s growing energy demand, placing LNG at the center of a realistic energy transition, and playing a critical role in safeguarding energy security and eliminating energy poverty.”

His Excellency Minister Al-Kaabi added, “While we recognize the tremendous value that the Qatargas brand has accumulated over time, we believe that this evolution will further strengthen Qatar’s global position by creating and leveraging a stronger salient link to the QatarEnergy brand to deliver even more value to the State of Qatar, its customers and the broader stakeholders’ ecosystem. In this context, we are reaffirming our belief in the future of LNG as a primary source of energy for decades to come and placing greater emphasis on the central position LNG occupies in our strategic priorities, development efforts, and energy investments.”

Established in 1984 as Qatargas, “QatarEnergy LNG” is a unique global energy operator in terms of size, service and reliability. It currently operates 14 LNG production trains and is at the center of QatarEnergy’s efforts to raise Qatar’s LNG production capacity to 126 MMtpa.​
