Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi – the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum – has completed his working visit to Japan, noting that approximately 2300 cargoes of LNG have been delivered to Japan since 1997.

During the visit, in which Al-Kaabi was joined by Sheikh Khalid bin Khalifa Al-Thani, CEO of Qatargas, as well as a number of other senior officials, discussions were had with numerous Japanese corporations. The meetings focused on both current and future cooperation between Qatar and Japanese companies, particularly in terms of the LNG industry.

Al-Kaabi praised the relationship between the two nations, claiming: “The LNG trade lies at the heart of these special ties.

“Qatargas was started in the early nineties as an entirely dedicated project to Japanese customers, leading to 1997 – the year of the first Qatari LNG shipment to Japan.

“As of today, I am proud say that we have successfully delivered around 2300 LNG cargoes to our Japanese customers.

“We continue to place the highest priority on maintaining a safe and reliable LNG supply to our friends in Japan.”
