Nakilat, the shipping arm of Qatar’s liquefied natural gas (LNG) sector, has held the Qatar Project Shipping Forum (QPSF) in London over two days.
The semi-annual forum brings together many owners of leading international shipping companies along with ship charterers such as Qatargas and RasGas.
Topics discussed included current issues of common interest relevant to safety, operations, environmental laws and maritime regulations. Other topics included operational matters, exchange of expertise and relevant skills such as marine personnel employment and maritime training on advanced technologies that would enhance safety and contribute to the reduction of operational costs.
In a press statement, Nakilat said QPSF is as an “important platform, established and organised by Nakilat in 2006, to address concerns covering a wide array of topics, including shipping safety, technical, marine environment and logistics, and it gives an opportunity to exchange ideas related to shipping operations”.
Nakilat managing director Abdullah al-Sulaiti said, “We at Nakilat strive to ensure the continuation of our global growth, which contributes to the creation of a safe competitive environment and efficient operations in the future. Therefore, it is essential to continuously exchange experiences and ideas with our partners as owners, operators and charterers in the areas of maritime industry and in particular gas shipping.
“As Nakilat organises and holds QPSF in its 20th cycle this year, we aim for the exchange of experiences and ideas to build and strengthen the strategic partnership between all parties and the essential role played by Qatari companies.”
