British Shell is set to sign a major agreement with Qatar by taking a stake in a $29 billion project to boost Qatar's exports of liquefied natural gas, just as Europe races to shore up new supplies of the fuel, Bloomberg reports.

According to the report, the move comes just as Europe races to shore up new supplies of the fuel.

London-based Shell will announce its partnership with state-controlled Qatar Energy in Doha on Tuesday, according to two people familiar with the matter, report says.

Shell's Chief Executive Officer, Ben van Beurden, is to attend the signing ceremony with Qatari Energy Minister, Saad Al Kaabi, who is also CEO of QE, one of the people said.
