Qatar Petroleum’s Dukhan Operations hosted on November 29 the “Operations Directorate Finance Day 2012,” an event that brought together representatives from the different departments under QP’s Operations Directorate.

The event, which was held at the Dukhan Recreation Club, started with Mr. Ahmad Saif Al-Sulaiti, Operations Manager-Dukhan Fields, welcoming all the department representatives to Dukhan. Mr. Said Mubarak Al-Mohannadi, Director Operations, then delivered his welcome remarks and officially opened the budget presentations.

“We have been on a journey of evolution as a directorate and everyone of you has been involved, in one way or another, in this journey. We have changed our culture to meet the present needs and we shall continue to change to meet the challenges and opportunities of the future,” said Mr. Al-Mohannadi.

“We need to be proactive to capture opportunities by identifying gaps in our business processes and choosing the most suitable best practices to close these gaps. We need to create a social factor within our business that will enrich our culture as this will contribute to the development of human capital,” he added.

Mr. Al-Mohannadi pointed out that good communication and knowledge sharing at all levels is a must, resulting in teamwork that he stressed is essential in the directorate’s day-to-day operations. He also announced that the Operations Directorate will soon be certified to the Integrated Management System of Quality, Environment, Health and Safety.

The budget presentations of the QP’s Operations Directorate started with Dukhan Operations, followed by Offshore Fields, the Drilling Department, and then Gas Operations.
