By OGJ editors

HOUSTON, Dec. 9 -- Qatar Petroleum and ConocoPhillips signed a statement of intent (SOI) in Doha Monday preparatory to construction of a world-scale gas-to-liquids plant in Ras Laffan Industrial City, Qatar.

The SOI initiates detailed technical and commercial preengineering studies and establishes principles for negotiating a heads of agreement (HOA) for the integrated reservoir-to-market GTL project. ConocoPhillips president and CEO Jim Mulva indicated that the participants expect to complete the HOA by yearend 2004.
