The Qatar Fuel Additives Company (QAFAC), the leading producer of methanol in Qatar, is set to organize the first-ever Middle East Methanol Forum on the 26th of November, 2014 at Sharq Village and Spa, in Doha.

QAFAC will conduct the event in association with Muntajat, Qatar’s Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company, with support from the Methanol Institute, the global trade association for the methanol industry in Qatar.

It would be the first-ever platform for discussion about methanol, and will include an overview of the methanol industry and markets in Qatar. A distinguished line-up of some of the world’s foremost experts on methanol are expected to meet up and discuss about the current state of the methanol industry as well as future trends that can further enhance its production, trade and consumption.

A panel discussion on the topic titled ‘Making the Case for Oxygenates in the GCC (Gulf Co-operation Council)’ will also be conducted in which public policy, regulatory initiatives, research projects, and developing applications for methanol and downstream fuel blending in the GCC markets will be discussed.

Along with several question and answer segments for participants to actively engage and interact with resource speakers, Mr. Khai Zhao, the deputy director of the academic board office of the Center for Global New Energy Strategy Studies (CGNESS) and China Association of Alcohol & Ether Clean Fuel and Automobiles (CAAEFA), China, will give a presentation on ‘Market Perspectives: The China Question’, providing an in-depth analysis of the methanol market in China, including demand side, expected future growth areas, and implications for Middle East producers, distributors and traders.

In addition, Mr. Abdulrahman Ali Al-Abdulla, CEO of Muntajat will address the conference in a session on ‘Global Ambitions: The Vision to Expand Qatar’s Chemical and Petrochemical Industry Worldwide’, where he will talk about the creation of Muntajat and how important this milestone is in the growth of Qatar’s chemical and petrochemical industry.

The CEO of QAFAC, Nasser Jeham al-Kuwari said that by organising this forum, QAFAC aims to highlight the regional and global role of methanol in the energy industry, and transportation sectors. (GK)
