Maersk Oil: The Whale Sharks of Qatar

In 2012 Maersk Oil Qatar commissioned Myriad Global Media to produce a documentary entitled ‘A Gathering of Giants: The Whale Sharks of Qatar’.

Filmed in Maersk Oil’s Al Shaheen field, this is a story of a research trip undertaken by the Maersk Oil Research and Technology Centre (MO-RTC) in partnership with the Ministry of the Environment’s Whale Shark Research Project.

Three years on and the film has achieved over 90,000 views on YouTube and multiple awards wins at festivals including WorldFest-Houston and The New York Film Festival.

This article, recently published by Maersk Oil’s, fondly reflects on the project and provides the audience with an engaging insight into these amazing creatures:
