Doha: Germany and Qatar have signed a new agreement in order to increase their energy cooperation. The joint declaration agreement was signed by Dr. Robert Habeb, German Minister of Economic Affairs and Climate Change and Qatar’s Minister for State for Energy Saad Alkabi to increase cooperation in the area of energy.
This agreement was reached through talks between Emir Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani (German counterpart) and the new one. This agreement will open the door to liquefied natural gases (LNG) trade and help implement the goals of both countries on climate change.
Germany will be able to diversify its energy supply by importing LNG from Qatar. It can also use bilateral facilities for hydrogen and renewable resources. Germany seeks to diversify its gas supply using LNG in order to increase energy security and stability during the transition towards carbon neutrality.
