QP Trading LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of QatarEnergy established in 2020, aims to establish a world-class, dedicated LNG trading arm for QatarEnergy. Based in Doha, QP Trading is tasked with building a globally diversified portfolio of third party and equity LNG.
QP Trading’s activities include physical trading & origination, derivatives trading, freight trading, portfolio optimization, and trading risk management.
Establishment of QP Trading, and the expansion of QatarEnergy’s capabilities and reach is an important step in reaffirming the organization’s belief in LNG’s economic and environmental value proposition and its cornerstone role in energy transition. QP Trading will play a vital role in the growth of Qatar’s LNG industry underpinned by world-leading LNG liquefaction capacity, which will reach 110 mtpa by 2026 with the currently undergoing North Field expansion project.
