Qatar has named Saad al-Kaabi as the head of its OPEC delegation, replacing Mohammed al-Sada, OPEC announced on its website on November 14, according to Reuters.

Earlier this month, Kaabi became Qatar’s minister of state for energy affairs.

Kaabi will retain his position as president and chief executive of state energy giant Qatar Petroleum (QP), a source told Reuters.

He was also named as QP deputy chairman in a corporate reshuffle earlier this month.
