Qatar Petroleum has denied a report about cancelling staff holidays and their exit permits.
The company, in a statement issued yesterday, said no expatriate or national employees in Qatar Petroleum or its subsidiaries have been denied leave or exit permits. However, due to the current embargo imposed by some neighbouring countries, a few selected critical employees may have been asked to postpone their leave for operational reasons.
This is a very limited measure that could take place in any oil and gas operating company should an operational need arise to ensure uninterrupted energy supplies to all our customers across the world, the company added.
