Nakilat held a two-day Qatar Project Shipping Forum (QPSF) in London recently.
QPSF, Nakilat said, is an important platform, established and organised by Nakilat in 2007, to address concerns covering a wide array of topics including shipping safety, technical, marine environment, logistics, and it gives an opportunity to exchange ideas related to shipping operations.
The semi-annual forum brings together many owners of leading international shipping companies along with ship charterers such as Qatargas and RasGas.
Topics discussed are current issues of common interest and relevant to safety, operations, environmental laws, and maritime regulatory. Other topics discussed include operational matters, exchange of expertise and relevant skills such as marine personnel employment and maritime training on advanced technologies that would enhance safety and contribute to the reduction of operational costs.
Nakilat managing director Abdullah al-Sulaiti commented on the importance of this forum saying: “We at Nakilat strive to ensure the continuation of our global growth, which contributes to the creation of a safe competitive environment and efficiently operations in the future. Therefore, it is essential to continuously exchange experiences and ideas with our partners as owners, operators and charterers in the areas of maritime industry and in particular gas shipping.”
Al-Sulaiti added, “As Nakilat organises and holds QPSF in its 19th cycle this year, we aim for the exchange of experiences and ideas to build and strengthen the strategic partnership between all parties and the essential role played by the Qatari companies.”
