Qatar is on track to become the world’s largest producer of liquefied natural gas (LNG), the country’s former energy minister stressed on Saturday during a discussion at the Doha Forum, which concludes on December 15.
H.E. Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah, the chairman of the Al-Attiyah International Foundation for Energy and Sustainable Development, made the statement during the forum’s special session titled ‘Spotlight Conversation with H.E. Abdullah Bin Hamad Al-Attiyah.” Al-Attiyah recalled Qatar’s journey in the oil and gas industry and how it emerged as a leading producer of LNG through its partnerships with major oil and gas companies in the US and Europe. “Since discovering liquid gas, Qatar emerged as among the biggest producers of LNG worldwide,” Al-Attiyah noted, adding that the country’s success in the hydrocarbon sector enabled it to create a wide range of downstream industries in the succeeding years.
