Qatar Petroleum President & CEO, and Chairman of Qatargas, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi concluded a working visit to Japan, during which he held talks with major Japanese energy companies on enhancing existing cooperation. Mr. Al-Kaabi was accompanied on the visit and talks by a delegation comprising a number of senior QP and QG officials.

Talks and discussions during the two-day visit focused on ways of boosting future cooperation between Japanese customers and partner companies, particularly in the LNG trade. They included meetings with Chairmen, Presidents, and senior executives of Chubu Electric, Jera, Mitsui, Chiyoda Corporation, Idemitsu, Cosmo Oil, LNG Japan, Mitsui & Co., Marubeni Corporation, and Itohchu. Meetings were also held with financial institutions such as Bank of Tokyo – Mitsubishi UFJ and Japan Bank for International Cooperation, utility companies such as Tokyo Electric (TEPCO), Kansai Electric, and Tohoku Electric; and other major shipping lines such as NYK Line, MOL, K Line and Iino.

Mr. Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi also took part in the annual reception hosted by Qatargas for its Japanese partners and customers, which was attended by hundreds of guests including the ambassador of the State of Qatar to Japan, members of the Arab and international diplomatic corps, the Mayor of Tokyo, government officials, and senior executives from the energy and banking sectors, as well as a number of Qatari students in in Japan.

Speaking at the reception, Mr. Al-Kaabi said, “1997 was the beginning of our historic journey in Japan with Chubu Electric and the seven founding Japanese buyers. The friendship and commitment of Qatar Petroleum and Qatargas towards our partners remain just as strong as it was then – if not stronger. I am proud to announce that we have successfully delivered more than 2,500 cargoes to our esteemed Japanese LNG buyers. This achievement could not have been possible without the confidence of our customers and the cooperation of all our partners in Japan.”

“For us in Qatar, we have watched the volatility that has characterized the energy market in the past two years. And, throughout this time, we have never lost sight of the need to maintain and enhance our long-standing relationships with our valued customers and partners,” Mr. Al-Kaabi added.

Concluding his remarks, Mr. Al-Kaabi expressed gratitude to all Qatar’s business partners in Japan for their continued support and friendship, stressing that “Qatar places great value on its relationship with its clients in Japan, and we will work towards better and stronger relations”.
