QATAR IN TALKS WITH CENTRICA
Qatar is in talks with Centrica over investing in UK power plants, under plans to expand its partnership with the British Gas owner.
Energy and Industry Minister HE Mohammed bin Saleh Al Sada said Qatar was “discussing some projects” in the UK energy sector with Centrica, citing “a lot of common interest and values between the two companies.”
Centrica signed a cooperation agreement with Qatar Petroleum International in 2011, which has so far focused on projects in North America. Last year it also signed a QR25.78 billion (£4.4 billion) liquefied natural gas supply deal with Qatargas.
