GAC opens branch in Ras Laffan

GAC Qatar has opened an office in Ras Laffan Industrial City in response to growing demand for its shipping and logistics services at the port.

GAC Qatar general manager Daniel Nordberg, GAC Group president Bengt Ekstrand and GAC Group vice president for the Middle East Fredrik Nyström with the Ras Laffan team.

In addition to these services GAC Qatar provides support for offshore projects from the port, which is operated and managed by Qatar Petroleum. Previously, GAC handled operations at Ras Laffan in an owners’ protecting agency (OPA) capacity and, from May 2017, had a team based there to provide ship agency and support services.

GAC Qatar general manager Daniel Nordberg said the decision to set up an official branch in Ras Laffan is in direct response to growing activity at the port, which he said is the only port for offshore field support in Qatar.
