Qatargas has issued its latest Sustainability Report, an update on the Company’s economic, social and environment performance in 2013. The report, which is the fourth such report by Qatargas, also includes data for the past 4 years as well as insight into the Company’s future activities towards its 2015 vision.
Commenting on the Company's performance, Sheikh Khalid Bin Khalifa Al-Thani, the CEO of Qatargas, said:
"For Qatargas, our dedication to becoming the world’s premier LNG company means we continue to focus on becoming known for our people, innovation, operating excellence and corporate social responsibility. This forms the foundation of our approach to sustainability, an approach that continues to develop in alignment with the sector and national frameworks. In 2013, we achieved significant milestones in several areas. They included a 20 per cent reduction in total hydrocarbon flaring from LNG assets, and a reduction in water consumption, as compared to the previous years. In safety, we proudly accomplished 20 million safe work hours for our Jetty Boil-Off Gas Recovery Project. Our Qatarisation rate advanced to 26 per cent and the average training hours per employee rose from 24.7 hours in 2012 to 28.7 hours in 2013. These key developments were combined with a 70 per cent rise in our social and community investment spending.”
