Qatar has shrugged off the impact of an economic embargo by its powerful neighbors and aims to reclaim its crown as the world’s largest LNG producer from Australia, targeting 110mn t/y by 2024.

State of Play

As the world’s largest LNG exporter, Qatar has been able to minimize the disruption caused by the ongoing Saudi-led blockade. A 40% capacity increase to 110mn t/y by 2024 is progressing, with the first wells to be drilled in early 2020. QP is pressing ahead with contract awards ahead of bringing IOCs onboard.
