Viable path for carbon neutrality

Qatar Minister of State for Energy Affairs and QatarEnergy president and CEO Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi said: “This agreement does not only reinforce the long-lasting and strategic partnership between QatarEnergy and Shell, but also creates a viable path for innovation and investments in low carbon fuels and technologies across the UK’s energy sector, a key area of investment for QatarEnergy.
