Oil and gas

At a glance

The Oil and Gas sector is central to Qatar’s export economy. The State is and will continue to be the world’s largest exporter of Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) with its unrivalled expansion. This is supported by its world-class industrial cities that not only encompass a full-service port, but also a residential community with an array of facilities. Such factors have contributed to increasing investments in the sector and attracting several multi-national oil and gas corporations.
