[Name and title]
General Manager, Production
“Pearl GTL is the world’s largest GTL facility. It’s Shell’s single biggest investment ever. It’s the largest single foreign investment in Qatar and it’s a tremendous example of the valued relationship that Shell has with Qatar Petroleum.”

Interview with Sheikh Thani Al-Thani
[Sheikh Thani Al-Thani ]
Deputy GM, Pearl GTL
“My personal message is safety is not within the fence, it’s all the way to the home.”
Sheikh at a computer in a personal office; closer shot of Sheikh; close-up of hands as he types.
“It’s never easy feeling someone is going to get hurt. It’s a simple thing, their hand or god forbid something really bad happen to them. So they have to make sure that they understand the whole aspect of being safe.”
Men in hardhats and overalls next to equipment, gathered in a circle and listening to someone talk.
“You have a simple common vision and you call it goal zero.”
Interview with Nabeel Al-Saadi
Deputy GM, Production
“The vision for goal zero is no harm to people and no leaks. And no harm to people is all about personal safety. And no leaks, we just made it in a simple language that everybody can understand but on a bigger picture we’re talking about process safety.”
“When we started here in Qatar even in the first meeting the message was safe and reliable production. Driving things in a safe, reliable way, that’s the pinpoint in our success story.”
Nabeel and others seated around a room. Close-up of Nabeel as he talks. Other people talking and listening. Framed certificates on a sideboard.
“So safety is a value and it’s not a priority, because I believe priority changes but value does not change.”
Man in overalls standing by machinery writing something in a notebook, close-up of his hands; hardhat; yellow rectangle; Nabeel interview; someone turning a nut with large spanner; Nabeel talking to people; people working on some paperwork.
“We’ve just had an award for 10 million hours without a loss time injury, but we still have small injuries. So we’re absolutely obsessive about rooting out even small problems. You don’t know whether the result of a small injury one day might be a mind-set in somebody’s head which could lead to something really serious in days to come.”
Interview with Steve; close-up of someone writing.
Two people in overalls with thick gloves. Person walking out into plant, looks at a piece of equipment and pulls out a notebook, starts writing. Man flicking through paperwork. Group of men in overalls huddled together, listening to someone speak.
“It’s a relentless effort to keep safety performance up. We start our days with our safety toolbox talks, with our technicians, our contractor partners.”
People listening to a talk; Nabeel talking; person taking notes; another person talking; interview with Nabeel; more people taking notes.
Particularly we, most of the time, talk about incidents and learnings, whether they happened here or happened somewhere else, and we share those because we want to avoid those incidents happening again.
“So all of these things come together. Our feeling of community, our care for each other and just the same business common sense of making Pearl a great place to work and a very, very profitable facility.”
Man in overalls getting onto bus; person’s feet walking along tarmac; interview with Steve; shots of Pearl.
“In five years’ time or so the guy you’ll be talking to here as general manager for production will be an experienced Qatari oil and gas professional, and I really hope that the team that is running Pearl GTL has done such a great job in establishing safe, reliable production and it makes Qatar Shell the energy partner of choice for the state of Qatar.”
Large new office type building. A promenade of palm trees outside building. Qatari flag. People walking past large pipes, camera looks up the pipes. Close-up on pipes.
“I want to be associated with this because for me as a Qatari working at Qatar Shell and Pearl GTL is really something unique and I’m very proud and I always talk to my friends and say, I’m working at the biggest GTL plant in the world.”
