GAC Qatar has set up an office at Ras Laffan LNG port. It is one of the few companies offering full agency services at the port, which is operated and managed by Qatar Petroleum.
Daniel Nordberg, General Manager of GAC Qatar, commented: “The Port of Ras Laffan receives nearly 1200 port calls from LNG, LPG and hydrocarbon-carrying vessels yearly. This is a market with vast potential and being one of the first few ship agencies in the country to enter this market marks exciting times ahead for us.”
The new GAC operations office is manned by a team of ten dedicated to providing full agency and complementary services for vessels calling at Ras Laffan. Being based on-site puts GAC Ras Laffan in a better position to serve the needs of their customers with round-the-clock operations.
GAC Qatar has more plans in the pipeline, including the development of upstream oil and gas yards in the Port of Ras Laffan to support Field Operators and EPC contractors.
