Qatar Airways opened its own Premium lounge at Suvarnabhumi airport in Bangkok back in February 2018 and I wrote a piece about it based on my visit in March (read more here).
The lounge is only open for business and first class passengers. You cannot access it based on Oneworld status (Sapphire or Emerald) if traveling on economy. You can, however, access it when flying on other Oneworld airlines on business or first.

Qatar Airways announced late Tuesday that they had purchased 5% stake in China Southern Airlines on December 28, 2018.
China Southern suddenly exited SkyTeam on January 1, 2019 giving the alliance only 45 day advance notice (read more here). It has been rumored that the airline would be joining Oneworld in due course.
