Qatar Petroleum (QP) recently held its annual Continuous Service Awards (CSA) Ceremony to give due recognition to a total of 339 employees who have been part of the organisation for the past decades.
Addressing the honoured employees, Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, President and CEO of Qatar Petroleum, stressed that QP is now a more focussed, more cohesive, and a more adaptive corporation.
“We are more determined than ever to complete that journey to become one of the best national oil companies in the world, while at the same time enhancing Qatar’s leading position in the global oil and gas industry. It is you who will make sure that we go there.”
QP’s CSA Ceremony 2017 was held at the convention hall of QP Headquarters in West Bay, and it was also attended by the corporation’s executive vice presidents, vice presidents and other senior officials.
The 339 QP staff who were honoured during the event consisted of 129 employees who have been working in QP for the past 20 years, 109 employees who have completed 25 years of service thus far, 59 staff who have already put in 30 years of service, 29 others who have been part of the corporation for the past 35 years, and 13 employees who have achieved a career milestone of 40 years of service with QP.
The awards came from QP’s various directorates and corporate departments and represented a wide range of nationalities. They are based in the corporation’s major areas of operations in Doha, Dukhan Concession Area, Mesaieed Industrial City, Ras Laffan Industrial City, Halul Island and offshore production stations.
During the event, Al-Kaabi personally congratulated each of the honoured employees as he presented them with a certificate of appreciation and a gift as a token of gratitude for their many years of service with QP.
The event was the first of two recognition ceremonies scheduled this month, with the second set to be held tomorrow to recognize 951 employees who have already completed 10 and 15 years of service with QP.
