The event will be held at Doha Exhibition Centre from October 7 to 10 under the patronage of HE Dr Mohamed bin Saleh al-Sada, Minister of Energy and Industry and Chairman of Qatar Petroleum.
Covering 10,000sq m, the four-day event will feature a major exhibition with participants from 20 countries, including Kenya, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, the UAE, Oman, the US, Singapore, Switzerland and Turkey. Around 10,000 representatives from local, regional and international oil and gas companies are expected to attend the event.
The major sponsors are Qatar Petroleum (QP), ExxonMobil Qatar, RasGas Company Limited (RasGas), Occidental Petroleum of Qatar (Oxy Qatar) and Qatar Shell. Qatar Expo Event Management has also announced that 90% of the exhibition space has been sold out.
Showing its support for DIOGE, QP has confirmed its participation in the event as the host and platinum sponsor. ExxonMobil Qatar, meanwhile, has signed on as a diamond sponsor.
“ExxonMobil is pleased to partner with the Doha International Oil and Gas Exhibition this year,” said Saleh al-Mana, vice-president of public and government affairs for ExxonMobil Qatar. “The exhibition offers immense opportunities and our decision to support it stems from our commitment to support Qatar across various fronts, particularly in advancing public awareness about the role Qatar has assumed as the largest supplier of liquefied natural gas.”
