QatarEnergy CEO: 40% Of New LNG Coming To Market By 2029 Will Be From Qatar

A full 40% of all the new LNG that will come to the market by 2029 will be from Qatar, the country’s Minister of State for Energy Affairs, President and CEO of Qatar’s national oil company, QatarEnergyhas declared

 “Gas will always be needed as the cleanest fossil fuel for the base-load required for electricity production and for powering industrial and manufacturing factories. We have to have a balance between what we need for humanity and how we can manage it properly. And if you look at what we are doing in Qatar, we are increasing production to 126 million tons per annum (MTPA) and we have another 16-18 MTPA out of the U.S. coming online next year. We are doing it in the most responsible way as far as emissions are concerned with CO2 sequestration,” Al-Kaabi said during a “Leadership Dialogue” held as part of the 20th International Conference & Exhibition on Liquefied Natural Gas.

Last year, Australia emerged as the world’s leading exporter of LNG, shipping 82.0 million tonnes (Mt) of LNG2 valued at $63 billion, a new world record. That figure eclipsed 81.2 Mt exported by Qatar and 79.1 Mt exported by the United States. However, increasing regulatory scrutiny by the Australian government, including the possibility of gas intended for LNG projects being diverted into the domestic market, might limit Australia’s ability to maintain the lead. Lately, the Australian government has been intervening more aggressively in local gas markets. Last year, following the east coast energy crisis, the federal government toughened the Australian Domestic Gas Security Mechanism (ADGSM), which gives it more power to limit LNG exports.

Meanwhile, Europe’s purchases of U.S. LNG have lately dwindled, with June’s volumes clocking in at 4.15 million metric tons, down from 5.63 million tons in May.  Europe’s gas inventories, including in the United Kingdom, have been rapidly increasing and have now hit 889 terawatt-hours (TWh), according to data from Gas Infrastructure Europe. Stocks are now +246 TWh +38% above the 10-year seasonal average, although the surplus has narrowed from +280 TWh +81% in March.

    Qatar is the world’s LNG giant. It is the largest exporter of LNG (except in 2022 when Australia overtook it by a mere 0.8 million tons), the cheapest production costs and the most totally integrated LNG industry in the world. This means that Qatar owns the gas reserves, the liquefaction plants and a large modern fleet of LNG tankers to transport its LNG to the four corners of the world with the added advantage that all these assets are already paid for.

    Qatar will have a production capacity of 110 million tons per annum (mtpa) by 2024/2025 rising to 126 mtpa by 2029 and accounting for 40% of all new LNG coming to the market.

    Moreover, all Qatar’s added LNG capacity is being contracted for years into the future with China signing two 27-year contracts for the supply of 4.0 mtpa each.

    Qatar's business model is one of the most sophisticated ones in the world. It is realistic, cost-effective, profitable and environmentally friendly.

    How many countries in the world can boast such a model?
