Qatar won’t cut gas to UAE – Qatar Petroleum CEO


Qatar will not cut off gas to the United Arab Emirates despite a diplomatic dispute and a “force majeure” clause in its contract, Saad Sherida al-Kaabi, the chief executive of Qatar Petroleum has told Al Jazeera..Al-Kaabi said that although there was a “force majeure” clause in the agreement on the Dolphin gas pipeline – which pumps around 2 billion cubic feet of gas per day to the UAE -Qatar would not stop supplies for other reasons.

“The siege we have today is a force majeure and we could close the gas pipeline to the UAE,” he said. But if we cut the gas, it does great harm to the UAE and the people of the UAE, who are considered like brothers … we decided not to cut the gas now.”
