Doha, April 19 (QNA) - Nakilat organized the 21st Qatar Project Shipping Forum (QPSF) in London with the participation of many owners of leading international shipping companies along with ship charterers such as Qatargas and RasGas.
The bi-annual event gathered the company's joint venture partners, ship operators and charterers to discuss numerous matters concerning the Nakilat fleet as well as the general shipping and maritime industry.
Initiated and established by Nakilat since 2006, QPSF continues to be a significant platform for the company to meet with its partners, share knowledge and exchange thoughts on a wide range of topics such as safety and environment, capability development, technological advancements, ship performance and other issues related to shipping operations.

"Synergistic collaborations with our partners are very important for the sustained growth of Nakilat, especially since we are expanding our role in ship management," Nakilat’s Managing Director Abdullah Al Sulaiti said. "The forum allows all participants to not only strengthen established ties but also gain valuable insights from the exchange of expertise and ideas to ensure we operate in a safe, reliable and efficient manner. As the leading transporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG) worldwide and comprehensive maritime provider in Qatar, we are strongly committed towards the continuation of our global growth, in line with our vision to be a global leader and provider of choice for energy transportation and maritime services," he added.
