Analysis - Energy Sector Highlights Last updated: October 20, 2015

  • Qatar is the largest exporter of liquefied natural gas (LNG) in the world, and the country’s exports of LNG, crude oil, and petroleum products provide a significant portion of government revenues.
  • Qatar’s crude oil production is the second lowest in the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), but increasing production of noncrude liquids–most of which are a byproduct of natural gas production–is contributing to gradual growth in total liquids production.
  • Three oil fields account for more than 85% of Qatar’s crude oil production capacity.
  • Qatar was the third-smallest crude oil exporter among OPEC members in 2014, ahead of only Ecuador and Libya.
  • Qatar’s refining capacity exceeds domestic demand for petroleum products, thus enabling the country to export most of its refinery output.
