Change brings a chance to forge a career with a recognised industry leader. Change means facing challenges with innovation. Change can lead to a cleaner more efficient source of energy for the world.
16 REASONS TO MAKE THAT CHANGE
1. Premier LNG Company
We at Qatargas are proud to deliver one of Qatar’s most precious natural resources to the world. We have played a significant role in positioning Qatar as world leader in LNG.

2. Largest LNG Trains in the World
Four of our seven LNG production Trains are the largest in the world, each with a production capacity of 7.8 million tons per year of LNG – that’s a lot of LNG! In February 2011, Qatargas’ latest Train (Train 7) started LNG production, bringing our overall production capacity to 42 MTA – the largest in the world.
This achievement has contributed significantly towards realising His Highness the Emir, of the State of Qatar’s Vision to achieve the country’s target to output 77 million tons of LNG per annum. This could meet the current natural gas demands for the entire world for approximately 13 days!
