The Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), the global platform of the leading gas producing countries, led by its Secretary General HE Eng. Mohamed Hamel held a meeting with HE Dr Mouhamed Habibou Diallo, the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Senegal to the State of Qatar during a courtesy call to the Senegalese Embassy in Doha today.

The discussion primarily centred on ramping up cooperation between the two sides, as Senegal gets ready to become an LNG exporter by the end of 2023.

During the meeting, HE Hamel introduced the history, impact and function of the GECF, and explained the numerous benefits available to the GECF Member Countries. Recalling the fruitful participation of HE Aissatou Sophie Gladima, the Minister of Petroleum and Energy of Senegal, in the 22nd GECF Ministerial Meeting (2020) hosted by Algeria, he expressed the wish to have Senegal present at the 24th GECF Ministerial Meeting in Cairo (2022).

Furthermore, the GECF official invited the esteemed diplomat to the Forum’s headquarters to witness first-hand the many projections and datasets available through the GECF Global Gas Model and to leverage those insights on the development of gas industry in Senegal.

HE Diallo reaffirmed the interest in learning from the experience of the GECF and its Member Countries, many of whom have successfully developed their natural gas reserves for the benefit of their nations as well as for the advancement of the global energy landscape.

In February 2022, on the sidelines of the 6th GECF Summit in Qatar, another country from Africa, Mozambique, became the 19th member to join the GECF and the 7th from the continent
