  • 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).

  • Energy Companies


    Qatar Energy (QE, previously, Qatar Petroleum) is the national company in charge of the development of the oil and gas sector. In 2021, it has changed its name to bring forth its strategy to switch towards energy efficiency and technologies such as CCS. Upstream to downstream activities are wholly managed by QE and its subsidiaries.

  • Energy Supply


    Gas production has remained stable since 2013 (169 bcm), after a rapid increase between 2005 and 2015 (14%/year). Most of the production comes from the large offshore North Field.

  • Energy Prices


    Oil products were historically strongly subsidized by the government, resulting in very low end-user prices. After a subsidy cut on diesel prices in 2014 and another on gasoline prices in 2016, the government decided to reform fuel subsidies and allow prices to fluctuate on a monthly basis.

  • Energy Consumption

    The country's total energy consumption per capita is very high at around 17 toe, including 15 480 kWh of electricity (5th highest level for electricity in the world).

    Total energy consumption increased by 8% in 2021 to 52 Mtoe after a slow growth between 2013 and 2019 (1%/year). It grew very rapidly between 2000 and 2013 (11%/year).

  • 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).
