Energy City Qatar | LUSAIL | U/C

Hey, great new for Qatar and especially you Abdulla, enjoy:



Qatar-based Al Addiyar Real Estate Investment Company said it had signed an agreement with Gulf Energy, to develop an `Energy City' in Qatar. It said the 'ground-breaking development will raise the global stakes of Middle East's energy sector, reshape the dynamics of its business and expand its role in the management of above-ground resources'.

The construction of the project will begin in the third quarter of this year, said Al Addiyar Real Estate Investment Company chief executive Nassser Hassan Al Ansari.

Al Addiyar is a government-owned company with a capital of $1 billion and Gulf Energy is a global consortium of leading energy consultants, researchers and academics.

Gulf Energy will develop the marketing as well as technical strategy in co- operation with Al Addiyar Real Estate to develop this landmark project.

The multi-billion dollar Energy City, positioned as the first-ever integrated, energy hub in the region, will significantly enhance the Gulf region's ability to capture critical revenue streams from hydrocarbons, and act as a nucleus for the core elements of the vertical section of the Middle East's oil and gas industry.

Commenting on the project, Nassser Hassan Al Ansari added:

'According to the master plan, the `Energy City,' will function as a nerve centre of global oil and gas business in the Middle East, by attracting the biggest players in the hydrocarbon value chain.

'It will consolidate markets, R&D, technology, education, training and finance under roof, promoting co-operation at both commercial and technical levels.

'The development will also offer opportunities for real estate investment in hotels, exhibition halls and malls.'

The project is a pioneering initiative that will take the Middle East much beyond its role of just controlling over half of the world's oil and gas reserves.

Energy City will place Qatar on the world energy map, joining the league of other key energy centres like Calgary, Singapore, Houston, Stavangar and Aberdeen.

'The multi-billion dollar Energy City will revolutionise the oil and gas sector in the Gulf,' Ansari said.

'It will house an integrated complex where international and state-owned oil companies and service providers will base their operations.

'The Energy City will also integrate crucial asset classes such as hi-tech data, infrastructure, communications and advanced management.'

He said the Energy City would also have a Shipping and Trading component which can be housed anywhere in the Gulf and still be part of Energy City - thus reinforcing its regional character. It will host the Gulf Mercantile Exchange (GMEX), trading rooms, brokerage offices and base for shipping and logistics.

The intellectual and technology cluster will form the heart of Energy City. Its Core Research Lab and Data Centre will form a crucial area comprising a main research laboratory linked to geology & geophysical analysis facility.

Ansari said the Energy City would also offer research centre a Research Satellite for environment, renewable energy and regulatory policy.

An exclusive Education and Training Centre will be set up in collaboration with Imperial College, Texas, A&M and IFP, with regional affiliations.

The Service Industry Satellite will serve as a base for oilfield services industry comprising drilling, service, EPC contractors, offshore suppliers and seismic companies. The Infrastructure and Downstream Satellite will house downstream companies.

GFH to play major role in $1.6bn Qatar project

MANAMA: Bahrain-based Gulf Finance House (GFH) has been appointed as lead financial adviser for a $1.6 billion first phase development of the Energy City in Qatar.

Gulf Energy, a global consortium of leading energy consultants and major investors from the Gulf, US, Europe and South East Asia, yesterday unveiled the master-plan for phase one of the multi-billion dollar Energy City.

The project aims at significantly enhancing the Gulf region's ability to capture critical revenue streams from hydrocarbons and act as a nucleus for the core elements of the Middle East's oil and gas industry.

"As a leading Islamic investment bank that has been associated with some of the most prestigious projects in the region, we are confident that GFH will be able to create a viable, innovative and strong financial blue-print for the Energy City - Qatar project," said GFH chief executive officer and board member Esam Janahi.

"The proposed clusters that will comprise the first phase development of the project will include an Intellectual and Technology centre; Education and Training centre; Shipping and Trading centre; Oil and Gas Producers centre; Service Industry centre; Infrastructure and Downstream centre; and an Information, Press and Associations centre.

"Energy City - Qatar is an extremely prestigious project that will function as a nerve centre of the global oil and gas business in the Middle East, by attracting the most significant global players in the hydrocarbon value chain."

The global energy markets are passing through a phase of unprecedented change, said Mr Janahi.

I think that when building a multi billion project selecting a good name is around the least of their priorities. Anyways the project is still in the early stage they can always change the name later on.

On another note I think that Bahrain working with Qatar on this project is great. Something that I think we will see a lot more of in the near future, especially after the bridge.

fahed is just pissed dubai didnt think of that before hand. Energy City is a perfect name for a project which is involved in the whole chain of energy production to enery research.

Better than Falcon City or Golf Ciity.

Anyways, Ras Laffan Industrail City for such a long time there was talk to name it either RL Energy City or RL Green City sort of to give it a positive ring. This project is probably going to be integrated with Ras Laffan Industrail City, where the worlds largest gas industry sits.

he said blah blah city i'm pretty sure he is also referring to all the other project names that ends with the word "city", and if you see how he said it he uses the word "we" as in regional nations.

I doubt it would be in ras laffan. These are obviously admin buildings and most admin buildings in ras laffan will be moved to doha.

It will be somewhere, im guessing around north al dafna.

I might be wrong.

إم زد أند بارتنرز مهندس البناء والتخطيط لمدينة الطاقة بقطر

أعلن الخليج للطاقة، وهو اتحاد عالمي يضم نخبة من المستثمرين والاستشاريين في قطاع الطاقة والذي يقف وراء اطلاق مشروع مدينة الطاقة قطر التطويري الذي ستصل تكلفته الاجمالية الي عدة مليارات من الدولارات اليوم عن تعيين شركة إم زد اند بارتنرز لتكون مهندس البناء والتخطيط الرئيسي للمشروع.

وسوف يقام هذا المشروع التطويري ضمن مشروع لوسيل الذي تم الإعلان عنه مؤخرا في الجزء الشمالي من الدوحة بتكلفة اجمالية قدرها 5 مليارات دولار أمريكي، والذي سيغطي مساحة 35 كيلومترا مربعا ويشتمل علي مراس ومنطقة سكنية وضواح تجارية ومرافق ترفيهية متعددة تتضمن ملعبين لرياضة الغولف.

وتعتبر شركة إم زد أند بارتنرز التي يقع مقرها في الدوحة عاصمة قطر، إحدي شركات هندسة البناء والاستشارات الهندسية الرائدة اقليميا، وتم اختيارها من قبل الخليج للطاقة بعد دراسات مستفيضة واستطلاعات واسعة شملت شركات هندسية عالمية رائدة.

وفي تعليقه علي هذا التعيين قال السيد عصام جناحي، رئيس مجلس إدارة الخليج للطاقة ومدينة الطاقة قطر: يتمثل هدفنا في ان يشكل مشروع مدينة الطاقة قطر التطويري صرحا عمرانيا فريدا من نوعه، ولدينا ثقة تامة في ان شركة إم زد أند بارتنرز تعتبر الشريك المناسب لانجاز أعمال التصاميم وهندسة البناء لمشروع كبير بهذا المستوي من الأهمية وجاء اختيارنا لهذه الشركة لقدرتها علي وضع التصاميم التي تتماشي مع فكرة وطبيعة المشروع التطويري المتخصص بقطاع الطاقة وذلك من أجل تأكيد تميز وتفرد هذا المشروع واكتسابه هوية خاصة.

وقد تم تخطيط وتصميم مشروع مدينة الطاقة قطر ليكون أول مركز متكامل من نوعه في منطقة الشرق الأوسط للأنشطة والأعمال المتخصصة في قطاع النفط والغاز علي مستوي العالم، وتحتوي دول المنطقة علي النسبة العظمي من مصادر الطاقة التي تعتمد علي الموارد الكربونية.

وأضاف: سيتم تطوير مشروع مدينة الطاقة قطر من خلال تعاون قوي بين مجموعة من الشركاء الاقليميين والعالميين، وسوف يسهم ذلك في زيادة تدفق الاستثمارات المحلية للعمل داخل دولة قطر ودول المنطقة الأخري بشكل عام ويضيف قيمة ايجابية كبيرة الي عملية التنوع الاقتصادي التي يتم تفعيلها في هذه الدول، ويشكل تعيين شركة إم زد أند بارتنرز خطوة استراتيجية مهمة في تقدم مراحل العمل في المشروع .

وأوضح السيد جناحي: لدينا ثقة كبيرة في الخبرة الكبيرة لشركة إم زد أند بارتنرز والتزامها الكامل بانجاز مراحل العمل ضمن اختصاصها علي أكمل وجه وضمن الجدول الزمني المحدد، ويأتي تعيين الشركة الاستشارية والهندسية الرائدة تماشيا مع استراتيجيتنا التي تتبني تشجيع الشركات والمؤسسات المحلية ومنحها الفرصة للمشاركة وتحقيق الفائدة من وراء إقامة مشروع مدينة الطاقة قطر .

وقد تم مؤخرا الكشف عن المرحلة الأولي من مدينة الطاقة - قطر، والتي ستبلغ تكلفتها الاجمالية 1،6 مليار دولار أمريكي.

من جانبه قال السيد مروان زغيب مدير عام شركة إم زد أند بارتنرز معلقا علي هذا التعيين: نحن سعداء وفخورون جدا لمنحنا هذه الفرصة المتميزة للمشاركة في تطوير هذا المشروع الاقتصادي الكبير الذي سيعمل علي تفعيل العمليات والأنشطة التطويرية في دولة قطر ودولة منطقة الشرق الأوسط علي السواء، ونحن عازمون علي تكريس خبرتنا الكبيرة خلال عملنا في هذا المشروع الحيوي الكبير، وسنعمل علي ان تكون تصاميم جميع مرافق المشروع مستوحاة من طبيعة المشروع وأنشطته المتعلقة بالطاقة .

وأضاف: ان هدفنا في هذا المشروع التطوير في جانب التصميم العمراني، ليس فقط العمل علي تشكيل هوية خاصة ومتميزة تنفرد بها مدينة الطاقة قطر، بل سنعمل كذلك علي تأكيد ان استهلاك مصادر الطاقة في هذا المشروع سيكون ضمن ادني حدود التأثير علي البيئة لضمان استمرار سلامة الطبيعة .

ويأتي تعيين شركة إم زد أند بارتنرز بعد فترة قصيرة من تعيين بيت التمويل الخليجي المستشار المالي الرئيسي وتعيين شركة بي.إف.سي للطاقة مستشارا رئيسيا لمشروع مدينة الطاقة قطر.

وتعد مدينة الطاقة قطر المشروع الاول من نوعه ويهدف الي استقطاب استثمارات الشركات العالمية الكبري في قطاع المواد الهايدروكربونية الي دول المنطقة وسوف تكون هذه المدينة مركزا متكاملا لأنشطة الطاقة والأعمال، وستحتوي علي مرافق شاملة ومناطق متطورة متخصصة بتوفير الخدمات، والتي تجمع الأسواق وخدمات التمويل تحت سقف واحد.

I think this will be a great addition to the economy. Already Qatar is leading the world in gas exports and energy--why not create a city for it.. It will boost the ecnomy of losail region and doha as a whole.
