GAC Qatar Celebrates 40 Years Of Growth With Inauguration Of Ras Laffan Office

The inauguration of GAC Qatar’s branch at one of the world’s largest hydrocarbons export ports, Ras Laffan, marks the latest stage in the company’s expansion plans.

The official opening comes as the company celebrates 40 years since its establishment, and confirms its position as one of the leading companies offering full shipping and logistics services as well as support for offshore projects from the port, which is operated and managed by Qatar Petroleum. Previously, GAC handled operations at Ras Laffan in an OPA (Owners’ Protecting Agency) capacity and, from May 2017, with a team based there to provide ship agency and support services.


GAC Qatar General Manager Daniel Nordberg says the decision to set up a fully-fledged office there was in direct response to growing activity and demand for services at the port. Ras Laffan is the only port for offshore field support in Qatar, and all the field operators are based there.

In 2018, the number of port calls handled by GAC Qatar increased about 70% from the previous year. Much of that growth was related to Ras Laffan, hence the decision to establish a full operation there.

“We have been able to respond to growing demand for our services at the port with the support of the authorities, for which we are very grateful,” adds Nordberg.

“LNG is a key driver for growth in Qatar, with exports forecast to increase further by about 40%. We have what it takes to provide the logistics and shipping support for that sector, and we are keen to play our part to support Qatar Vision 2030, both in Ras Laffan and throughout the country.
