Chapter  7 explained the preference for joint venture agreements in the Qatari gas industry at the macro-level through reference to the domination structure of Giddens’ structuration theory, the first dimension of organisational culture. This chapter examines the second dimension of organisational culture, namely signification, as a further contribution to understanding why there is a preference for joint venture agreements in Qatar from a macro-level perspective.
