Qatar energy markets long-term outlook 2018

Report summary

Qatar's energy landscape is largely dominated by exports. Domestic demand for gas (for power and industries) only adds up to 11% of total gas production. Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) production accounts for the largest share of export revenues and investments in the sector will continue. The moratorium on the North Field was lifted in 2017 and a new upstream phase will boost LNG production by 30% next decade. This will allow Qatar to reclaim its title of world's largest LNG producer which it will lose to Australia in 2019. The country is also pushing for energy diversification. Although we expect strong renewable developments over the forecast, its contribution will remain thin due to the sheer size of the country's hydrocarbon production. This report highlights the key energy trends in Qatar, focusing mainly on natural gas: Will Qatar have a surplus of gas when the Barzan field comes onstream? Where will growth in gas demand come from? What is the outlook for exports?
