He brings extensive experience in LNG, gas-to-liquids, condensates, shipping and commercial marketing.
“Given his robust commercial background, his experience in many of our core sectors, and his record of performance at Qatargas, the Board and I have full confidence in his abilities to continue Milaha’s strong performance and lead our future growth plans,” said Sheikh Ali bin Jassim Al Thani, Milaha’s chairman.
Al-Mannai commented: “Milaha is an institution in Qatar and an integral part of Qatar’s economy, and I share Milaha’s ambition to continue to expand its horizons in Qatar and abroad.”
