(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Qatar Shell and Qatar German Gasket Factory (QGER) signed a five-year supply contract, adding another new local supplier to Qatar Shell's supply chain. This contract will enable Qatar German Gasket Factory to provide a range of gaskets to the world-scale Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) plant, the largest energy project ever built in Qatar and the largest GTL plant in the world.

This is part of Qatar Shell's strategy to support the Qatar National Vision 2030 by empowering local SMEs to compete internationally by meeting global industry standards.

Rob Sherwin, Deputy Country Chairman for Qatar Shell, signed the contract with Captain Ghassan Al Salem, the Chairman of Qatar German Gasket Factory.

Speaking after the signing ceremony, Rob Sherwin said: "We are delighted to welcome Qatar German Gasket Factory to be a supplier of choice to Qatar Shell and the Pearl GTL plant. Being able to rely on a quality local supplier such as this undoubtedly contributes to sustainable and efficient operations at the plant. We at Qatar Shell strongly believe that it is part of our responsibility as the largest foreign investor in the country to empower local businesses, and that it ultimately makes good business sense to partner with world-class suppliers based here in Qatar."

Captain Ghassan Al Salem said: "We are honored to have this great opportunity to supply gaskets for the Pearl Gas to Liquids (GTL) plant. The entire QGER Team is thrilled to be awarded this contract as this came after very hard work between the Qatar Shell and QGER teams to finalize this agreement. We are proud to take on this challenge to strengthen our reputation not only in the Qatari market but the global market as well. We are delighted that Shell once again expresses their faith and confidence in us".

Heinz Hurter, General Manager Middle East, Qatar German Gasket Factory made a presentation on the wide range of gaskets manufactured and supplied from the company's factory in Qatar. The Qatar German Gasket Factory had already been providing quality support to the Pearl GTL Plant during the commissioning and start-up period prior to signing of this long-term supply contract.
