Qatar Petroleum (QP), along with its joint venture companies, RasGas and Qatargas, took part in the “18th International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG 18)” held in Perth, Australia.
LNG 18 is considered the premier event for the world’s LNG industry as it features the largest number of high-level LNG industry leaders as plenary speakers. The four-day event is presented by the International Gas Union (IGU), the Gas Technology Institute (GTI), and the International Institute of Refrigeration (IIR), with the support of the Australian Petroleum Production & Exploration Association (Appea).
QP joined other major oil and gas companies exhibiting at LNG 18 at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. The QP exhibition stand showcases the activities of the corporation’s Industrial Cities Directorate, as well as the operations of Qatargas and RasGas, the “Global Sponsor” of the event. 
The stand prominently highlights the state of Qatar’s current standing as the world’s No 1 producer and exporter of LNG, with its 77mn tonnes per annum (mta) of production capacity. 
The delegation from Qatar is headed by Hamad Mubarak al-Muhannadi, CEO of RasGas, who delivered a speech at the event’s second plenary session on “The Globalisation of Gas.” 
Many members of the Qatari delegation are attending the LNG 18 conference, with two senior officials from Qatargas also set to deliver presentations in the commercial and special interest streams of the conference sessions. Their presentations focused on the incentives needed to meet future LNG demand and their programme for effective flare reduction in the industry.
LNG 18 has attracted the participation of over 5,000 industry professionals from over 60 countries from across the world. In addition to the conference and exhibition, the event also features workshops, a training course on the basics of LNG, poster sessions, a student forum, networking opportunities, and technical tours to major LNG facilities in Australia. 
The overall theme of the event is “Redrawing the Global Map of Gas” to emphasise the changing LNG market realities due to various factors such as international trade, geopolitics, technological innovations, investments, and regulations.
First launched in Chicago, Illinois in 1968, the “International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas” is organised every three years, and the 14th edition of the event was hosted in Doha in 2004. The next event, LNG 19, will be held in Shanghai, China, on April 1-5, 2019.
