GAC Qatar has set up an office at the Ras Laffan LNG complex, becoming one of the few companies offering full agency services at the port operated and managed by Qatar Petroleum.
It is the latest expansion of the company, which previously handled operations at Ras Laffan in an OPA (owners’ protecting agency) capacity.
“The Port of Ras Laffan receives nearly 1200 port calls from LNG, LPG and hydrocarbon-carrying vessels yearly,” notes Daniel Nordberg, general manager of GAC Qatar, adding that GAC is one of the first ship agencies to enter this market in Qatar,
The new GAC operations office will provide full agency and complementary services for vessels calling at Ras Laffan.
The company also plans to develop upstream oil & gas yards in the port of Ras Laffan to support field operators and EPC contractors.
