"On behalf of the State of Qatar and Qatar Petroleum, I am delighted to join you today to celebrate a historic achievement and to congratulate all of you for accomplishing 100 million man-hours without a lost time incident," he told the site workers at the celebration

"This remarkable safety milestone could not have been achieved without the exceptional teamwork and attention to detail by RasGas, its contractors, and sub-contractors; but most of all, it could not have been achieved without you following the correct safety procedures

Each of you has worked hard as a single team for this recognition; and you deserve this celebration

I sincerely thank you for making Qatar proud," added HE Dr Al-Sada. HE Dr Al-Sada stressed that the State of Qatar sees no room for complacency when it comes to the welfare, well-being, and safety of its workers

"RasGas does not compromise on safety; as a world class global energy supplier, safety governs every aspect of how we do business. I am very proud of our impressive achievement and extend my congratulations to the RasGas Venture Group, project management teams, contractors, subcontractors and site workers for making this incredible milestone possible," said Al Mohannadi.

Over two million safety observations and interventions have been conducted during current Venture activities, and programmes such as "Total Safety Task Instruction" have helped raise the safety standard and quality for hazard assessment and work processes in the field. "When all project elements are considered - including, having a workforce of more than 30,000 workers from 45 nationalities, a three-square-kilometre complex project site, and working at a rate of over 1.5 million hours per week - successfully managing all these components simultaneously makes reaching this achievement truly remarkable. said Bseiso, RasGas Chief Venture Officer.
