3 QATAR PETROLEUM (QP) Overview Established in 1974 as a national corporation completely owned by the State of Qatar.Responsible for all oil and gas industry activities in Qatar, including exploration and drilling for hydrocarbon substances, production, refining, transport, storage, sale and export of the aforementioned substances and their derivatives and by- products.Qatar
4 The operations and activities of QP are conducted at various onshore locations, which include Doha, Dukhan, Mesaieed and Ras Laffan Industrial Cities, as well as offshore areas including Halul Island, offshore production stations, drilling platform and North Gas Field.
5 QATAR OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY Qatar hydrocarbon products are produced mainly from:Onshore Dukhan Field, Two offshore oil fields (Bul Hanine and Maydan Mahzam) and North Gas Field.Other offshore fields have been developed in cooperation with major international oil and gas companies through production- sharing agreements.Dukhan
6 QATAR OIL AND GAS INDUSTRY Currently, there is a great emphasis on the development of the large non-associated gas reserves of North Field. Several projects; are already tapping the Gas North FieldQatar Petroleum is committed to utilizing the latest technology and to improve the recovery of oil and gas reserves through the application of well established, state-of-the-art technology as captured within international standards.

15 Gulf Region StatesThey are the GCC countries of the Arabian Peninsula located at the west coast of the Arabian Gulf and east coast of Red Sea.KuwaitBahrainArabian GulfQatarUAESaudi ArabiaOmanRed SeaArabian Sea
16 Gulf Standardization Organization (GSO) – Background Gulf Cooperative Countries High Council (GCCHC) has established the Gulf Standardization Organization for Gulf Cooperative Countries (GSO for the GCC) on 9th November 1982.It is the Gulf region standardisation organization for GCC Countries (Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, Oman). GSO members are from all national standardisation organizations in these countries.
17 Principle Objectives of GSO Improve gulf countries economics by making them more efficient and competitive.Promote the development and unity of standardization efforts in the GCC countries.Promote the industrial, scientific and technological development in the benefit of exchange of goods and the provision of services.Facilitate cooperation in the intellect, scientific and social fields.
18 GSO Main Current Activities It is responsible for issuing new and updating existing Gulf Standards developed and approved by its technical committees. It is also responsible for adopting International Standards as Gulf standards..In cooperation with National GCC Standardization Organizations, GSO is currently making significant efforts on the adoption of International Standards on various subjects, as Gulf and National Standards and revise GSO Standards with respect to International Standards.
19 GSO Main Current Activities Cont., Harmonization of GCC Standards/Technical Regulations and conformity assessment procedures with International Standards and practices is one of the main items in the current and future plans of GSO.GSO is planning and looking forward to enhance the participation of the GCC countries in the International Standardization Technical Committees.

28 The Importance of International Standardization For the Gulf Region ISO is a world leading developer of International Standards. ISO Standards specify requirements of State-of-the-art products, services, process, material systems and good conformity assessment, managerial and organizational practices. ISO Standards are designed to be adopted and implemented worldwide.
29 The Importance of International Standardization For the Gulf Region Gulf Oil & Gas Industry can benefit from International Oil & Gas Industry experiences, new technology, managerial and organizational practices.Easy to prepare Gulf Oil & Gas Industry required Standards and practices, which enable companies to minimize their specifications.Establish common standards in Oil & Gas Industry for the benefit of world trade (Technology and information transfer) within the same regional area.
30 GULF STANDARDS BASED ON INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS IS A KEY TO SUCCESS FOR GULF REGION COUNTRIES ECONOMY(GSO TC 7)
