Agility wins major logistics contract from RasGas

September 8 - Agility has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract in Qatar by RasGas, the country's premier liquefied natural gas (LNG) enterprise.

The scope of the contract comprises global freight forwarding, transportation and customs clearance for a period of four years, both locally and around the world. At the time of writing, Agility has yet to confirm the likely significance of heavy and over-dimensional shipments to the contract. 

Elias Monem, Agility CEO Middle East and North Africa, said: "Qatar is crucially important to the growth of Agility in the region and this deal represents an important milestone in our company's six-year history locally, during which we have invested substantial sums. 

"Agility provides supply chain solutions and logistics services that support upstream (O&G exploration phase and crude oil), midstream (gas-related) and downstream (refined/finished products). Abiding to HSE (health, safety, and environment) accreditations, we are ISO 14001 and 9001 plus OHSAS 18001 certified."

RasGas Company Limited is owned by Qatar Petroleum and ExxonMobil RasGas Inc. It operates production facilities to treat, liquefy and export LNG to countries across Asia, Europe and USA. Based in Ras Laffan, Qatar, RasGas currently produces over 20 million metric tonnes of LNG per year (Mta) with five trains in operation. It is expected that this production will be approximately 37 Mta by the end of the decade, with the completion of seven operational trains.
