ExxonMobil, the largest publicly traded international oil and gas company, uses technology and innovation to help meet the world’s growing energy needs. ExxonMobil holds an industry-leading inventory of resources, is the largest refiner and marketer of petroleum products, and its chemical company is one of the largest in the world.
In Qatar, ExxonMobil has partnered with Qatar Petroleum to develop the North Field, the world’s largest non-associated natural gas field, through our RasGas and Qatargas joint ventures. Through these ventures, we have participated in 12 of the country’s 14 LNG trains, 27 of the world’s largest LNG ships, three receiving terminals in Europe and the United States, and Qatar’s largest condensate refinery.
Additionally, ExxonMobil is the only foreign participant in two domestic gas projects – Al Khaleej Gas and Barzan Gas. ExxonMobil also provides technical and management expertise to directly support Qatar Petroleum and Qatar Gas Transport Company Ltd. (Nakilat) through secondments of ExxonMobil employees.
With the belief that advancements in technology will play a critical role in meeting the energy demands and challenges of the future, ExxonMobil Research Qatar was established as an organization to conduct research in areas of common interest to the State of Qatar and ExxonMobil. Currently, scientists and researchers are progressing a number of projects in the areas of environmental management, water reuse, LNG safety and coastal geology.
The Qatar National Vision 2030 defines the long-term outcomes for the country and provides a framework in which national strategies and implementation plans can be developed. As part of ExxonMobil’s commitment to Qatar, we are proud to contribute to the National Vision through the energy of our people, our advanced technology, and our expertise in operational excellence.
ExxonMobil shares the view that investments in education, research and culture are essential to achieving the vision of a knowledge-based economy. As such, we are proud to support a variety of educational initiatives, social and community programs and sporting activities in Qatar.
ExxonMobil recruits graduates from internationally recognized university campuses within Qatar Foundation’s Education City and Qatar University while also identifying and hiring potential Qatari national employees from universities around the world. Recruited employees are provided formal and on-the-job training at local and international levels.
The economic and social progress supported by His Highness the Emir and espoused through the National Vision are strongly supported by ExxonMobil. We look forward to continued contributions to Qatar as it supplies the world with the secure, reliable and affordable energy that will be needed by an increasing population seeking a better quality of life.
