Qatar and China are engaging in negotiations regarding cooperation in the energy field as a Qatari delegation left for China. 

The delegation led by Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, Qatar Petroleum president & CEO and the chairman of the country’s LNG producer, Qatargas, will hold meetings with Chinese energy majors.

The list includes China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC), China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation (Sinopec), Beijing Gas, among others.

Qatar Petroleum said in a statement the visit comes at a time of increase in global energy demand rise lead by China.

Qatar launched the first direct shipping line between Hamad Port and Shanghai in 2017, followed by an agreement between Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat), the marketing arm of Qatar Petroleum, and Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani) to launch direct petrochemical shipping services from Hamad Port to a number of ports, including the port of Shanghai.

China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) was a partner with Qatar Petroleum and Shell as the winning bidding consortium for the Alto de Cabo Frio-Oeste block in the prolific Santos hydrocarbon basin offshore Brazil.

By the end of last year, China has overtaken South Korea as the world’s second-largest importer of LNG. Qatar, the world’s largest exporter of the chilled fuel, has, on the other hand, merged its two producers RasGas and Qatargas, under one company that started operation on January 1.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
