As per the deal, it will provide all support related to the gas supply to Q Properties' projects such as the Reem Hills luxury development during its engineering phases.
 
A unique gas service provider company in the Liquified Petroleum Gas (LPG), Natural Gas (NG) and Synthetic Natural Gas (SNG) fields, EIG aims to become the UAE gas sector’s market leader, utilizing the latest technologies and taking advantage of the company’s 30 years of UAE experience.
 
As part of the agreement, EIG will initially be installing the gas supply system at the recently launched Reem Hills project, the exclusive, AED8 billion ($2.1 billion) modern gated villa community on Reem Island and a leading project of Q Properties. 
 
Reem Hills comprises a range of spacious individual villas, semi-detached villas, and attractive town houses in a mixed-use residential development with retail components and full amenities on site.

The MoU was signed by Emirates International Gas CEO Moustafa Rashad and Q Holding CEO Majed Fuad Odeh in the presence of Khalifa Yousef Al Khouri, Vice Chairman of Q Holding and Ali El Gebely, Managing Director and Group CEO of Ethmar Holding. 
 
On the partnership, Rashad said: "EIG believes that its collaboration with Q Properties bears strong testimony to the shared vision of both organisations to adopt world-class standards and best practices to serve residential, commercial and industrial developments across the region, and we are looking forward to our collaboration delivering more efficient and sustainable gas supply projects serving Abu Dhabi society."
