09/02/2014 08:22 AST

Qatar Shell and Qatar German Gasket Factory have signed a 5-year supply contract under which QGER will provide a range of gaskets to the world-scale Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) plant at Ras Laffan.

With the agreement, another new local supplier is being added to Qatar Shell’s supply chain.

This is part of Qatar Shell’s strategy to support the Qatar National Vision 2030 by empowering local SMEs to compete internationally by meeting global industry standards.

Rob Sherwin, Qatar Shell deputy country chairman, signed the contract with Captain Ghassan al-Salem, Qatar German Gasket Factory chairman.

Sherwin said, “We are delighted to welcome Qatar German Gasket Factory to be a supplier of choice to Qatar Shell and the Pearl GTL plant. Being able to rely on a quality local supplier such as this undoubtedly contributes to sustainable and efficient operations at the plant. We at Qatar Shell strongly believe that it is part of our responsibility as the largest foreign investor in the country to empower local businesses, and that it ultimately makes good business sense to partner with world-class suppliers based here in Qatar”.

Al-Salem said, “We are honoured to have this great opportunity to supply gaskets for the Pearl GTL plant. The entire QGER Team is thrilled to be awarded this contract as this came after very hard work between the Qatar Shell and QGER teams to finalise this agreement. We are proud to take on this challenge to strengthen our reputation not only in the Qatari market but the global market as well. We are delighted that Shell once again expresses their faith and confidence in us”.

During the ceremony, Heinz Hurter, general manager (Middle East) Qatar German Gasket Factory, delivered a presentation about the wide range of gaskets manufactured and supplied by the company’s factory in Qatar. QGER had already been providing quality support to the Pearl GTL Plant during the commissioning and start-up period prior to signing of this long-term supply contract.
