“This is a major contract for Neptune and we are delighted to be partnering with Qatargas which is one of the world’s leading LNG companies, he said.
“This project not only strengthens our credentials with the LNG producers, it illustrates that Neptune’s growth strategy is delivering on a number of fronts.”
