Qatar bares its teeth with new production goal5 July 2017
Qatar Petroleum’s (QP’s) announcement that it intends to increase LNG production by 30% by 2024 suggests Doha is taking a more aggressive approach to maintaining its share of the global LNG market.
Qatar’s LNG production will increase from 77 mtpa to 100 mtpa within the next 5-7 years, according to a statement issued by QP on Tuesday.
QP will increase its production from the North Dome gas field by 20%, instead of the 10% target announced in April.
