I have had the privilege of visiting Dukhan, a city administrated by Qatar’s state oil agency, Qatar Petroleum, which manages its oilfields. Although the economy of this country relies mainly on NATURAL GAS, the headquarters of Qatar Petroleum are in the west of the country, from which it controls, coordinates and develops its oil projects.

I have been able to visit and learn about the facilities of this company, its laboratories and infrastructures from DrTariq Masood, Technical Operations Coordinator at Qatar Petroleum. I was also able to speak with Muneer Jabran A. Alyafei, Q. P., the Operations Manager.


It has been a tremendous experience and it’s the beginning of a valuable partnership for BISITE. Testing our smart systems in this industry is a big challenge.
