(MENAFN - The Peninsula) Qatar Petroleum (QP), together with several of its joint ventures and subsidiaries, has a strong presence at the 21st World Petroleum Congress (WPC), which has begun in Moscow.

H E Dr Mohamed bin Saleh Al Sada, the Minister of Energy and Industry, and Chairman of QP, delivered a speech at the opening ceremony.

The other speakers included Arkady Dvorkovich, Deputy Prime Minister for Energy of the Russian Federation; Dr Renato Bertani, President of the World Petroleum Council, and Vladimir Evtushenkov, Chair of the WPC Russian National Committee.

In addition, Dr Al Sada also attended the opening plenary and the inauguration of the exhibition, which was held earlier yesterday at the Crocus Expo International Exhibition Centre.

Dr Al Sada along with other VIPs then visited the QP pavilion, which also includes the exhibition booths of Qatargas Operating Company Ltd, RasGas Company Ltd, Qatar Petrochemical Company, and Oryx GTL Ltd.

Measuring a total of 450 square meters in area, the QP pavilion showcases the operations of QP and its subsidiaries and joint ventures, and it also highlights the corporation's 40th anniversary this year.

In addition to its prominent participation in the exhibition, Qatar's oil and gas industry is also represented at the 21st WPC Technical Programme.

Officials from RasGas, Oryx GTL and Qatar Shell will be presenting papers during the event, and there will also be a total of eight poster presentations from QP, Qatargas, RasGas, and Oryx GTL.
