Additionally, ExxonMobil is the only foreign participant in two domestic gas projects – Al Khaleej Gas and Barzan Gas. ExxonMobil also provides technical and management expertise to directly support Qatar Petroleum through technical services and secondments of ExxonMobil employees. ExxonMobil affiliates are working with Qatar Petroleum (QP) to identify International joint venture opportunities that further enhance the portfolio of both parties in countries such as Brazil, Argentina, the United States and Cyprus.
In 2009, ExxonMobil Research Qatar (EMRQ) was established at Qatar Science and Technology Park (QSTP) to conduct research in areas of common interest to the State of Qatar and ExxonMobil. Scientists and researchers at EMRQ continue to advance projects in environmental management, water reuse, LNG safety and coastal geology. By using global knowledge to develop local resources, EMRQ is able to create an invaluable link between the local and international research communities.
