 President & CEO, Qatar Petroleum


Qatar Petroleum’s Mesaieed Insudtrial City, Ras Laffan Industrial City and Dukhan Concession Area constitute a major stepping-stone in the optimal and responsible utilization of Qatar’s natural resources.

The 3 hubs of the energy industry were built and developed to enable the effective development and efficient operation of a globally competitive hydrocarbons and energy industry in the State of Qatar.

Dukhan is the historic heart of Qatar’s energy industry and the country’s onshore oil and gas production center. The concession area and associated township provide a comprehensive array of production support activities and services ensuring safe, efficient, and reliable operations by Qatar Petroleum and its partners.

The various industries operating in Mesaieed and Ras Laffan have a unique opportunity to tap into Qatar’s resources, create value added products, enjoy a strategic location to access regional and international markets, benefit from excellent services, facilities, and infrastructure, and leverage the excellent logistical support they offer.

Today, Qatar Petroleum’s industrial cities are home to the world’s largest LNG plants, as well as to leading petrochemical, steel, aluminum and other industries. They are active contributors to the Country’s socio-economic development as envisaged by Qatar National Vision 2030, and guided by His Highness Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, the Emir of the State of Qatar.
As we build upon our successes in forging mutually beneficial partnerships, we welcome you to explore this website and the opportunities offered by Mesaieed Insudtrial City, Ras Laffan Industrial City and Dukhan Concession Area.
