Qatar energy minister named QP head
Doha, February 14, 2011
Qatar's new energy minister, who took over last month, was also appointed chairman of Qatar Petroleum, the state news agency said on Monday.
Energy Minister Mohamed Saleh Al-Sada will also be managing director at state-run Qatar Petroleum, the Qatar News Agency said.
Rasgas managing director Hamad Rashid Al Mohannadi was named deputy chairman. Members of the board of directors serve for four years.
Qatar replaced veteran energy minister Abdullah Al-Attiyah with junior minister Al-Sada in January.
Al-Sada was previously managing director of Rasgas Company, which operates the Ras Laffan Liquefied Natural Gas Company. Al-Attiyah was previously chairman of QP. - Reuters
