Middle East & Africa: Consumption
The power sector is set to drive the MEA’s gas demand in the coming months as the northern hemisphere approaches the peak summer demand period.
Kuwait is boosting its gas-to-power capacity in preparation for the summer. In March, it started commissioning the first phase of Al-Zour North project, which has a capacity of 1.5 GW. The project also includes a 486,000 cubic metre per day desalination plant that is still under construction.
