QatarEnergy supports the State of Qatar’s National Vision 2030 of balancing the accomplishments that achieve economic growth with the human and resource needs of the people of Qatar. Our vision is to become one of the best national oil companies in the world, with roots in Qatar and a strong international presence.​


The Values adopted by QatarEnergy reflect what we stand for and our Code of Conduct guides the decisions made and the actions taken in every aspect of our business affairs. QatarEnergy aligns its system of corporate governance with these values and the principles outlined in its CoC, as well as the relevant laws and regulations in which we operate.

The QatarEnergy governance framework guides the Board of Directors and management in oversight of the organization. The foundation for this framework are the laws and by-laws of the State of Qatar with ultimate accountability residing with the Supreme Council for Economic Affairs & Investment. This  framework has led to the adoption of a system of governance practices and accountabilities that reflect international, best-in-class standards for good governance. At the same time, these practices comply with the applicable regulatory and legal obligations of the State of Qatar, and the locations in which we operate. Likewise, QatarEnergy’s governance practices ensure that adequate control, oversight and risk management mechanisms are in place across the organization, including in our subsidiaries and JV partnerships.​​​​​
