Qatargas to boost capacity in three years
"In the next three to four years we will have four times our current operating capacity exporting gas to three continents. During the same period, it is also becoming clear that the world economy will experience unprecedented stresses and strains," Al Suwaidi said.
" Qatargas has committed to a vision of becoming the world's premier Liquefied natural gas company. We have the resources and the will to make this a reality," he added while speaking at an innovative leadership training programme held for fifty top executives at Qatargas .
The program was specifically designed to support the realisation and achievement of leadership excellence for Qatargas . The modules were built by the Tepper School of Business at Carnegie Mellon University and Carnegie Mellon University in Qatar.
"To negotiate the obstacles and seize the opportunities that exist in such periods of major change, we understand the importance of building leadership capability throughout our organisation. Leadership for me is the ability to energize people and build relationships of value both within the company and outside it, with our business partners, our suppliers, our communities and our customers," said Al Suwaidi.
The Executive Education program for Qatargas consisted of seven modules that ran during 2008. They included sessions on a variety of topics including global competitiveness, smart value creation, team collaboration, strategic cost management, leadership networks and international business building.
" Qatargas is such an important part of what drives the nation of Qatar. That makes it a particular privilege for us to work with them on executive education, tailored to its corporate needs. We hope this is just the beginning of a long partnership between Carnegie Mellon and Qatargas , in research, education and roles for our alumni," said Charles E. Thorpe, Dean of Carnegie Mellon Qatar.
