Saad Sherida Al-Kaabi, the president and CEO of QatarEnergy, stands at the forefront of Qatar’s energy sector. Al-Kaabi’s journey began when he joined QatarEnergy as a university student. Since assuming leadership in 2014, he has steered the company towards success, cementing its position as a global leader in liquefied natural gas (LNG) production.

Under Al-Kaabi’s guidance, QatarEnergy has executed strategic initiatives to bolster its LNG production capacity and secure long-term partnerships. In October 2023, the company inked a significant LNG sale and purchase agreement with Eni, further solidifying its market presence.

One of the pivotal projects overseen by Al-Kaabi is the North Field Expansion, aimed at elevating Qatar’s LNG production capacity to meet surging global demand. With new finds in the North Field and extensive appraisal efforts, QatarEnergy announced the ambitious North Field West project, set to add 16 million tonnes of LNG by 2030.

Al-Kaabi also serves as Qatar’s Minister of State for Energy Affairs and holds key positions in prominent organisations such as Industries Qatar and the Qatar Investment Authority.
