Our stand, which attracted hundreds of visitors, captured the essence of the QP water conservation and reuse message in a simple and elegant design. We constantly drive for resource efficiencies throughout our operations and we have several initiatives in place to reduce water consumption. We have new treatment measures in place to allow process water to be recycled while using another portion for irrigation purposes in our site,” said Hassan Ibrahim, RasGas Environmental Affairs Manager. 

“We used an innovative combination of holographic images, a first for the Fair, and colourful water pipes, open stand design and an attractive green backdrop, to tell our conservation and reuse story,” said Ibrahim.

The RasGas stand also raised awareness about groundwater monitoring and how the company tracks the monitoring of 19 wells on a continual basis, which are reported to the national regulators.

During the QP Environment Fair, RasGas also donated thirty One Touch Ultra System devices (Glucose Metre) to the Hamad Medical Corporation to be given to diabetic patients who may not be able to afford to buy the devices.
