This is a testimony for you as much as it is for Qatar Petroleum’s great values that are inherent in every thing that we do, most importantly:  commitment, team work, dedication, and partnership.”

H.E. the Minister concluded by voicing appreciation to the employees’ long service saying “we in Qatar Petroleum are proud of the men and women from all walks of life and cultural backgrounds, who are our true assets.”
