Qatar Petroleum (QP) has honored 731 employees who have been serving the corporation for the past 10 to 15 years, in a ceremony held Wednesday under the patronage of HE the Minister of Energy and Industry Dr. Mohammed bin Saleh Al-Sada.

QP's annual Continuous Service Award (CSA) ceremony gave recognition to 418 employees who have completed 10 years of service thus far and 313 staff who have already put in 15 years of service with the corporation, a press release issued by the company said on Saturday.

"Qatar Petroleum has continued, and will continue, to invest in sustainable strategies to develop and retain its most valuable asset the human capital. The dedication of thousands of our employees is a strong indicator that we are on the right path in keeping pace with the continued growth of the vibrant oil and gas industry in Qatar under the wise leadership of HH the Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa Al Thani," Ahmad Ali Al-Mawlawi, QP's director for administration said in his keynote address.

After his speech, Al-Mawlawi presented each of the awardees with a gift and a certificate of appreciation signed by HE Dr. Al-Sada. The event was also attended by many senior QP officials, the families and friends of the honored employees as well as by members of the media.

The CSA ceremony was the second to be held by QP last week, following another one on Tuesday, which honored a total of 356 employees who have reached a milestone of 20 to 40 years of service at the corporation. In addition, as part of this year's CSA ceremony, 869 employees will also be receiving certificates for having been employed at QP for the past five years.

As before, this year's awardees come from QP's various directorates and departments covering the corporation's extensive operations in Doha, Dukhan, Ras Laffan Industrial City, Mesaieed Industrial City, Halul Island and other offshore areas.

Organized by QP's Public Relations and Communications Department in partnership with the Administration Directorate, the annual CSA Ceremony is one way by which QP honors its long-serving employees, thus recognizing their valuable contribution in the corporation's continued growth and in the continued development of Qatar's oil and gas industry.
