Country Analysis Brief Overview
- The United Arab Emirates has the seventh-largest proved reserves of both crude oil and natural gas.
- Enhanced oil recovery techniques continued to underpin strong crude oil production totals in 2011, when the UAE produced 2.69 million barrels per day, and are an important strategy for extending the life of the country's aging oil fields.
- Rapid growth in domestic energy demand over the past few years has caused the UAE to become a net-importer of natural gas.
- Alternatives to hydrocarbon-based electricity generation are making gains in the UAE, including the use of nuclear and renewable energy technologies.
