Shortly after New Year, Denmark's Minister of Foreign Affairs, Kristian Jensen (V- Liberal Party) will fly to Qatar, where Maersk Oil currently extracts around 40 percent of the company's combined oil output. This concession will expire in 2017, and Maersk is now competing with other oil majors such as Total and ExxonMobil for the new contract.

It has yet to be announced who Kristian Jensen will meet with in Qatar, and which role he will play, but Danish business daily Børsen reports that Maersk is certain to be the focal point of the visit.
