Institutions & Energy Policy
Qatar is a small country located on the north-eastern coast of the Arabian Peninsula. It is bordered by Saudi Arabia in the south and by the Persian Gulf and is separated from the island of Bahrain by a strait. Qatar has large natural gas reserves, which have transformed the country into a high-income economy. Qatar is a member of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) and of OPEC.
Qatar Petroleum (QP) is the national company in charge of the development of the oil and gas sector. Upstream to downstream activities are wholly managed by QP and its subsidiaries.
Gas production has remained quite stable since 2013, after a rapid increase between 2000 and 2013 (15%/year). In 2018, production reached 168 bcm. The majority of the gas production comes from the large offshore North Field.
Electricity is heavily subsidised, and tariffs are among the cheapest in the world. Significant subsidy cuts took place in 2017, leading to increases in electricity tariffs: prices were 30% higher for households in 2017 than in 2016 (US$3c/kWh) and 64% higher for industry (US$3.6c/kWh).

The country's total energy consumption per capita is very high at around 18 toe, including 13 200 kWh of electricity (the 5th highest level of electricity consumption per capita in the world).
Issues & Prospects
In 2013, the country announced a US$22bn plan for water and power projects between 2014 and 2022, but this amount was reduced to US$10bn in 2017. These projects will be implemented over the 2018-2022 period under the framework of the second National Strategic Development (2017-2022).
