Middle East & Africa: Trade

Qatar is exploring ways to boost its gas and LNG exports now that the North Dome moratorium has been lifted.

The proposed increase in Qatar’s gas production capability amounts to around 16.3 mtpa of LNG, which equates to just over 21% of the country’s nameplate capacity.
