Global gas markets long-term supply outlook - Qatar - H1 2016

Report summary

Qatar is currently the world's largest exporter of LNG, with a nominal production capacity of 78 mmtpa. In 2015, Qatar exported above its nominal liquefaction capacity as a result of improved plant efficiency. The North Field moratorium is expected to remain in place meaning that any future production growth is expected to be marginal and be driven by price opportunities.
