Under the patronage of HE the Minister of State for Energy Affairs, Saad Sherida al-Kaabi, also the President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, Qatargas received the prestigious ‘Crystal Award’ for supporting Qatarisation in the area of ‘Training & Development’ for the second consecutive year, which was announced during the Energy Sector’s Annual Qatarisation Review Meeting.
The Annual Qatarisation Review Meeting was held virtually with attendance from various companies from the energy sector in Qatar. The purpose of the annual Qatarisation Awards was to recognise companies who have consistently exhibited excellence during the prior calendar year in any of the four main categories which cover: support and liaison with the education sector, supporting Qatarisation, support for training and development, and best Qatarisation progress.

It is with great admiration that I have witnessed the Qatargas organisation demonstrate sustained resilience while continuing to give priority to achieving our important Qatarisation goals. I am confident that our comprehensive learning environment will help us continue in our journey to develop an even stronger workforce in alignment with the Qatar National Vision 2030.”
