Qatar and Korea share a strong relationship spanning over 40 years, and have achieved great milestones and achievements together. Qatargas Operating Company Limited is proud that the Republic of Korea is its foundation customer, and a shareholder in Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Company (RL1). In 1995, Qatargas signed the first LNG sales and purchase agreement, and four years later delivered the first cargo to Korea.

Since then, Qatargas has increased its deliveries to reach more than 9 million tonnes per annum (Mtpa) of LNG to Korean customers. In October 2010, Qatargas inaugurated its Korea Liaison Office (KLO) located in Seoul to better facilitate access to both its existing and potential LNG buyers in the country. In April 2017, Qatargas successfully delivered its 2000th LNG cargo to KOGAS. Today, Qatargas is the largest LNG supplier in the world with a production capacity of 77 Mtpa and a fleet of 70 vessels delivering to a large portfolio of customers across the globe on a long, medium and short-term basis.

Qatargas has supplied LNG to 31 countries and more than 70 customers, and is gradually increasing its footprint in Asia. The energy sector in Qatar is experiencing significant growth, and Qatargas is currently executing the North Field Expansion (NFE) project which will take the Company's overall production capacity from the current 77 Mtpa to 110 Mtpa by 2024. This is a great example of Qatar's determination to develop its valuable hydrocarbon resources in the most effective and efficient manner and play a major role in the energy transition.

Qatar clearly intends to maintain its leading position in the LNG industry and is determined to continue to supply the market with clean fuel. This decision also shows Qatargas' strong belief in the future of LNG as a clean and reliable fuel and the ideal companion of renewables during the transition towards an increasingly decarbonized global energy mix, driven by change in policy and regulation.

Qatargas is privileged to serve the Republic of Korea's growing energy needs and make a significant contribution to the economic cooperation between Korea and Qatar.
