People

Since 1981 Black Cat Engineering & Construction has provided its clients safe and quality engineering & construction services in the oil and gas industry in the state of Qatar. One of our visions is to be the leader in terms of building a diverse, professionally strong and well-appreciated workforce.

Starting out in a small office in Doha and in a single “porta-cabin” site office in Dukhan, we have since evolved into one of the leading EPIC and maintenance contractors for the oil & gas industry in the state of Qatar. Our current manpower is slightly less than 2,000 employees, of which 20 different nationalities are represented. They are deployed both to our headquarters in Doha and project works sites in Dukhan, Mesaieed and Ras Laffan. We continue to expand along with our parent company (QIPCO) under the patronage of H.E. Sheikh Hamad Bin Abdulla Bin Khalifa Al-Thani.
