Commenting on this acquisition, His Excellency Mr. Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum said, “We are delighted to have signed this agreement with Yara which will increase our effective share in QAFCO. This is another example of Qatar Petroleum’s successful implementation of its strategy of capacity and capability building and contributing to the robustness and development of the nation’s oil and gas industry. I would like to thank Yara for their partnership and sincere efforts in supporting QAFCO over the past half century.”

The transaction, in which the parties agreed on a purchase price of USD 1 billion for Yara’s 25% share in QAFCO, is conditional upon and customary regulatory and closing conditions.
